The Modkit MotoProto Shield for Arduino that makes it easy to connect up to 4 sensors and control two DC motors as well as a 16X2 character LCD. The sensor jacks accept 2.5mm cables and provide access to VCC, GND, and an analog input.
Sensors can be soldered to a 2.5mm cable and you can begin plug-and-play prototyping with a wide assortment of our sensors including line sensors, ultrasonic distance sensors, light sensors, photo interrupter, etc. There is also a large programmable button and a space for an i2c header to connect more advanced sensors such as an accelerometer.
The motor driver circuit is based on the L298 H-bridge and can drive up to 2 amps per channel. The board takes its power from the same Vin line as the Arduino board, includes blue and yellow LEDs to indicate active direction, and all driver lines are diode protected from back EMF.
Modkit develops a drag-and-drop graphical programming environment inspired by Scratch for Arduino and Arduino compatible boards, making it easier than ever to program your physical project. The Modkit MotoProto Shield is well suited for general projects, prototyping, and educational robotics.
Note: This product is a collaboration with ModKit. A portion of each sales goes back to them for product support and continued development.
