PRODUCT DETAILS

Features

  • Well-selected Grove modules with different functions including sensing, input, display, etc, very suitable for beginners.

  • Cost-effective compared to other starter kits for Arduino.

  • Well packaged with soft internal slot structure, protecting the product very well.

  • No soldering, no jumper wires.

  • Full Arduino library for Grove is provided. 

  • Detail instructions for each Grove module in our wiki system.

Attention

Please note that this kit is fit for 5V boards, like Seeeduino V4.2Seeeduino Lotus and Arduino UNO. Some modules are not compatible with the 3.3V development board.

Description

As an open-source hardware facilitator, we dedicate to make electronic prototyping easy and fast, and we believe that more effort should be put on concept design rather than how to build basic circuits especially in the idea phase. That is why we created Grove. We have released a blog about the introduction of the kit and some basic projects. It will help you get started. Wish you have fun with Grove products.


Grove is a modular electronic platform for quick prototyping. Every module has one function, such as touch sensing, creating audio effect and so on. Just plug the modules you need to the base shield, then you are ready to test your idea buds.


This Grove - Starter Kit for Arduino is a perfect starter kit for Arduino beginners. It includes a Base Shield which has many Grove connectors onboard, twelve Grove modules that cover most functions needed by a beginner, and a very helpful user manual that can help get started quickly. We have this part available in Geppetto. Easy modular electronic design with Seeed and Geppetto. Build it Now!

Note

This kit does not include Arduino. If you need an Arduino, please click here to buy the Arduino Uno, or you may consider the Seeeduino V4.2 as a second choice.

You can watch the "Unboxing and Getting Started" video below to have a more understanding about this Starter Kit and build interesting projects using the modules from this kit. Also, this video will help you set up all the necessary software to start using our Grove modules.

 

If you want a cheaper Starter Kit, you can take a look at Grove - Beginner Kit for Arduino. This Kit contains Seeeduino Lotus V1.1 which combines Dev board and shield together.

If you would like to try, but do not have any coding background ? Do not worry!With the help of Blokdots platform, the open source hardware innovations become super easy for anyone. 


Blokdots is a one-stop simplified software platform that empowers anyone to build their own Arduino projects and “interactive hardware prototypes without writing a line of code”. 


More importantly!  Blokdots is supporting the Grove Starter Kit for Arduino® for people who want to create prototypes without coding. 


By now, partial components of the Kit, such as, button, rotary potentiometer, brightness/light, sound, LED, buzzer, accelerometer, and air pressure are supported by Blokdots, and it is going to gradually implement all the modules in the Kit.



With Blokdots, you are able to make prototypes by simply adding step-by-step and drag-and-drop programming sentences, which allows building and coding projects for professional prototyping use.


I guess you are primed for prototyping your awesome ideas that have long been in your mind, however, what if you just want to try a few projects and do not need so many modules. 


That will not be a problem ! 


We are delighted to share with you our Grove kitting service! You can now customise your Grove Kit with the different boards, Grove modules and cables that you need. This customizability enables you to choose the modules and boards that you need specifically for your project or your requirements. 


You can also design the outer packaging of the Grove Kit by uploading your own designed stickers. You will then have your very own fully customised Grove Kit! 

 

Application 

Here are some awesome projects you can build by yourself if you have a Grove- Starter Kit for Arduino.

 

Smart Garden

With all the Grove Modules, you can make a smart garden sensor and reminder system where it tells the user to water the plant or when the environment is not ideal for the plant.

It will also feature an LCD screen display where it will show the temperature and humidity.


Through this project, you will learn:

  • How to combine multiple modules into one application

  • How to code for multiple devices in Arduino IDE

  • Ability to adopt multiple modules to work together = improve your electrical engineering knowledge and logic thinking skills!

You can find the full tutorial here ! 


Smart Cup

With the Grove buzzer, RGB LED, 3-Axis Accelerometer and LCD screen you will make a smart cup! Its function is to remind the user to drink water after a period of time and detect whether water has been consumed before resetting the timer.

Through this project you will learn:

  • TimeLib library on setting and controlling time with Lotus

  • Display and scrolling text on LCD screen

  • If…else…and switch…case…operation with || (or) and &&(and) logic operator

  • Applications of pitch and roll value reading from 3-Axis Accelerometer

  • BlinkWithoutDelay method to avoid using Delay function which prevent delay function to miss up the system timer.

  • How to make and call customized function

You  can find the full tutorial here ! 


Cup of Flowers

With the Grove Starter Kit for Arduino, you can make colourful and beautiful colours!

By activating the sensor, the flower LEDs will shine with a warm and comfortable light effect!

You can find the full tutorial here ! 


Arduino Clothes Recommender

With a combination of our starter kit modules and sensors, you are able to make an Arduino Clothes Recommender to recommend you what type of clothes to wear depending on the weather and temperature!

You can find the full tutorial here!
