The Shield Bot attaches to an Arduino compatible microcontroller to create a beginner friendly robot.
Start building an Arduino based robot within minutes by using the plug and play Shield Bot robot platform. This Arduino shield attaches right onto your Arduino to create a complete robot with room for expansion.
The Shield Bot robot has five IR Infrared Reflectance sensors for line following and edge detection. A built in motor driver powers two durable micro metal gearbox motor with a fast 160:1 gear ratio. Six Grove interface ports are provided for attaching a variety of Grove compatible sensors and modules. Stackable Arduino headers provide the ability to expand the robot with additional shields.
This robot is powered by a 900 mAh Li-on rechargeable battery. The battery can be recharged from a mini USB charging port or the Arduino VIN power input source. A handy power switch will turn off the robot while allowing the battery to charge via USB. Several indicator LEDs are provided to assist with diagnostics. An Arduino library is available to simplify programming.
