Playing around with Servo Motors is always fun, and you can do a surprising number of interesting things by simply swinging a servo arm, with even more exciting possibilities once you integrate multiple servos that all work together. This is precisely what makes the 2-DOF Pan/Tilt HAT for Raspberry Pi so great, as it utilises dual servo motors to control both the pan and the tilt of the mounting platform, which you can then install an RPi camera, LED matrix display, or even a mini nerf gun if that’s what you’re eager to do.

This 2-DOF Pan/Tilt HAT is designed specifically to be used with Raspberry Pi, and can in fact be plugged directly onto the top of Raspberry Pi Boards in a HAT-like fashion, with all of the necessary pins and mounting holes perfectly aligning. This, in conjunction with the fact that the kit includes two different servo motors, mounting brackets, as well as all of the necessary Fastening Elements to connect it all together, makes the 2-DOF Pan/Tilt HAT for Raspberry Pi one of the easiest ways to add pan/tilt and light-sensing functionality into almost any Pi project.

So, whether you want to use it as intended with a mounted RPi camera, or take the idea and stretch it even further with unique and exciting mounted Modules, components or even random objects, you can achieve it in minutes with this fantastic Raspberry Pi HAT kit. And soon, after some basic assembly and demo code testing, you will be on your way to having your own laser-chasing robot, light-sensing solar tracker, or even a little bot that hides away from bright lights while scurrying around in the darkness.

2-DOF Pan/Tilt HAT for Raspberry Pi

When it comes to producing unique electronics components and modules, there are very few brands that can provide the quality that Waveshare can. Based in the Futian District in Shenzhen, China, Waveshare are experts in developing electronics to a high standard of quality, which have been thoroughly tested to work seamlessly with corresponding development platforms and systems – such as the E-Ink HATs for Raspberry Pi’s.

What we love most about Waveshare is how they are dedicated to providing quality products, and have moved away from the typical “Made in China” stigma – cheap products with cheap parts and components. Instead, Waveshare understand the value of supplying quality products and building sustainable relationships with international resellers and distributors. They know that consistent quality will result in consistent business, and as such they always ensure strict quality control for each and every product that comes out of the manufacturing plant.

We are always excited to peruse through their vast catalogue of exciting new products to find unique modules, components or even entire development boards that are designed with quality in mind. Because we know that every cent that we spend with Waveshare will be well-spent, with each product that order adding real value to our own catalogue of products.
