VEXMAS – A VEX(tm) shield for the Arduino prototyping platform

Vexmas-Small

VEXMAS is a VEX(tm) shield for the Arduino prototyping platform. Adam writes –

In order to make VEX robotics more affordable/interesting for the classroom environment, my friend/co-worker and I have created an Arduino shield that creates an interface to all of the VEX components, including RF and also adds an H-Bridge for DC motors. Chuck delaCuesta and myself are both Technology Education teachers and are always working to improving the classroom learning environment through new technology. We have created a Google Code page to make our source and designs publicly available.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. Very neat! Too bad I don’t have a VEX kit handy…
