The Motorshield is a Raspberry Pi motor controller designed to make it easy and fun to create a Raspberry Pi Robot.
The board features a trusty L293D motor driver which can control DC motors as well as stepper motors at 600mA (1A peak) per motor.
You can also easily connect an IR line sensor or Ultrasonic sensor to the board thanks to the handy pin breakout with 3.3V output protection - great for making a smart robot which can follow lines or detect objects.
The onboard LED arrow indicator shows you the motor direction and is great for debugging your code.
