Address your IoT software testing needs – improve quality, security, safety, and compliance across the development lifecycle.

The PCB’s for the Sumo robot (see “New Sumo Robot Assembled, and looking good!“) arrived. It is the ‘production’ version of that shield I have shown in “Sensor and Communication Shield for Sumo Robot” which adds following to the robot:

  1. Ultrasonic module
  2. Bluetooth module
  3. nRF24L01+ module
  4. I2C I/O Expander for 8 extra I/Os
  5. One general purpose I/O header
  6. One general purpose I2C header
  7. Up to 6 infrared distance sensors
