Zumo Shield for Arduino

Zumo Shield for Arduino
Pololu item #: 2504 0 in stock

This product has been discontinued.

This has been replaced by a newer version (v1.2) that upgrades the integrated accelerometer/magnetometer and adds a 3-axis gyro, giving it a full IMU.

This shield makes it easy to build an Arduino-controlled Zumo robot. The shield mounts onto an assembled Zumo chassis, connecting directly to the chassis’s battery terminals and motors, and the Arduino plugs into the shield, face down. The shield includes dual motor drivers, a buzzer for playing simple sounds and music, a user pushbutton, and a 3-axis accelerometer and compass. It boosts the battery voltage to power the Arduino, and it breaks out the Arduino I/O lines, reset button, and user LED for convenient access and to accommodate additional sensors for things like obstacle and edge detection.
