Robot Shield with Arduino

Our very popular Robotics Shield Kit is now available in a complete package that includes an Arduino Uno and programming cable. ‚ Learn Arduino programming, robotics, and circuit-building all together by following our free, step-by-step web tutorials. Suitable for hobbyists, robotics summer camps, and grade 7-12 classrooms. Building the robot takes about an hour, and the online tutorial includes 40 hands-on activities. The assembled robot fits back in its box for safe-keeping between activities.

Key Features:

  • Complete - just add batteries!
  • Beginner-friendly - No programming experience needed
  • Solder-free - Experiment with custom circuits on the breadboard (no special-brand connectors)
  • Understandable - Free, easy-to-follow web tutorials and example code downloads
  • Autonomous - DIY touch, light, and infrared sensor circuits let the Shield-Bot navigate on its own
  • Expandable - Additional sensors and hardware accessory kits are available to get the most out of your robot.
  • Affordable - Educator discounts available at any quantity


Application Ideas:

  • A robot friend for your home
  • "Staff" for your Robotics Summer Camp
  • A fleet of robots for your classroom
Note: Requires five 1.5 V AA batteries, not included. For use with six 1.2 V rechargeable batteries, add a Boe-Boost module, sold separately.

The tutorial will walk you through the following:
  • Learning to program your robot's Arduino Brain
  • Calibrating the robot's continuous rotation servo motors
  • Using lights and a speaker for status indicators
  • Assembling the robot
  • Preprogrammed navigation
  • Using touch-switches to navigate by contact with objects
  • Using phototransistors to navigate by light
  • Using non-contact infrared sensors to measure distance and avoid or follow objects
