The Motor Shield is a driver module for motors that allows you to use Arduino to control the working speed and direction of the motor. Based on the Dual Full-Bridge Drive Chip L298, it is able to drive two DC motors or a step motor. The Motor Shield can either be powered directly by Arduino or by an external 5V~15V power supply via the DC jack. This module can be used for the development of micro robots and intelligent vehicles, etc.

Please visit our wiki page for more info about this product. It will be appreciated if you can help us improve the documents, add more demo code or tutorials. For technical support, please post your questions to ourforum.
Also looking for the exact same information.
Not looking good if you asked this question three months ago with no response.
The Wiki has a note that says"it's a high level application for sense the current, please refer to datasheet and schematic for more information."
The datasheet has no information. The schematic shows me the wiring diagram. But no notes as to what is needed for current sensing.
Motor works fine using the demo code. However, I cannot stop one motor by using the function stop.
how to stop the motor properly using using SeeedStudio Motor Shield V2?Motor can be stopped when the function motordriver.setSp
Now this version of Mega shield is compatible with Arduino Due.
"now", as in it was modified? Or did it finally get tested? Did the guy below solve his connectivity issue?
Yes, we do solve this issue.
I do not understand what you mean. Your sentence makes no sense.
You DID solve the issue? How did you solve the issue?
Was the board changed? Will my older mega grove shields work with DUE?
What was the issue?
Maybe you have got a older version, but this version Now is compatible with Due. I don't know what the version of your board, but if it the version 1.0, it works with Due.
Is it possible to use this Motor Shield with the Ethernet Shield V2.2?
Yes, you can purchase it separately from OPL : http://www.seeedstudio.com/dep...
The"add to cart"buttons don't work.
Does seeed not want my money?
Too bad the search mechanism doesn't work wort a damn.
I tried searching by sku and"DIP Long Blue Female Header"and it returns nothing.
I have a test and the button can work well, if you have any question about order please click the bottom of Feedback&Support and drop a line to our customer service. Sorry for that inconveniences and Good luck.
Can this shield be use with the Raspberry Pi B+?
Okay, thank you for your feedback. Since this shield is only designed for Mega before DUE released, it may be not compatible with DUE .
This is defiantly a question of inexperience but I have been trying to figure this shield out and just cant seem to do it. I have an Arduino mega and I have the library installed. I am powering the shield and the Arduino with a 9.6 volt 700 mAh battery
Hi Mike , thanks for you question.It is can't be used with Stalker , you can use Grove - Base Shield :
I am having the same issue as Gabe for a similar project with an RC car. The motor shield is only sending 4 volts out of the outputs, though it claims to have the capacity to send anywhere up to 15 volts. I can't find any code samples or information
will this shield work on an arduino Yun ?
Yes it is.
hey i gotta dum question i accidently bought this motor shield and i realised this wont meet the current requirements so it possible if i can connect with a mosfet then to my motors ?
Theoretically, you probably could with enough external circuitry (and/or perhaps removing the L298), but it wouldn't be a very productive use of the board.
You need to get a friend interested in the Arduino and sell him/her your board :-)
