For our Year 10 Computer Programming project at our school we were given the chance to work with Arduino microcontrollers.
My project partner Lachlan and I decided to make a remote controlled DC motor robot.
The components that we used were the Arduino board, the Ardafruit Motorshield, a Freetronics Bluetooth shield, and two 9V Lego motors.
There was no instruction manual for this, so we had to find all of the code to make this work from the internet. The code was not in one single place, so we needed to put different parts of code together to make this work.

Adafruit Motor/Stepper/Servo Shield for Arduino v2 Kit – v2.3: We have upgraded the shield kit to make the bestest, easiest way to drive DC and Stepper motors. This shield will make quick work of your next robotics project! We kept the ability to drive up to 4 DC motors or 2 stepper motors, but added many improvements Read more.
