Compared with the previous version, The Shield Bot V1.1 can use the usb port of PC to charge battery. And the charging efficiency is greatly improved after we optimize the circuit. And you can use the Arduino/Seeeduino Vin pin to fast charge.
Note: Compatible Arduino Board not included, try the Seeeduino.
Charge mode and charge efficiency as the following table:
|Mode||Charge Current(A)||the input power(W)||Charge power(W)||Charge Efficiency(%)||Charge time(h)|
Easy to start - The Shieldbot is plug and play and can be running out of the box in minutes
Expandable for imagination - solderless grove expansion ports enable easy attachment of more sensors and actuators, and shield headers allow the use of additional Arduino shields
Open source - Its designed to be hacked, adapted and transformed into whatever you want it to be!
Arduino Based - the Shieldbot is an Arduino shield, so the extensive Arduino community and shield ecosystem can be used for endless expansion!
Charging efficiency - Can quickly fully charged, And has a high efficienty.
5x IR reflectance sensors for line and edge following
900 mAh Li-ion rechargeable battery
Two durable 160:1 micro metal gearmotors
6x Grove expansion ports
Stackable shield headers

I just received my Shield Bot today. It is hardware version 0.9b. Looking at the wiki, it seems that it is 2 versions out of date (V1.0 and V1.1 are shown in wiki). I was expecting the latest version. Is version 0.9b what is currently shipping or did IQuestion by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:34:28
Currently, we have sold two version: V0.9 and V1.0. V1.1 are in Production. The Shield Bot V1.0 is the upgrade version of Shield Bot V0.9. We just change its structure.They are same in hardware.Answer by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:34:28
s there a document describing the electronics on the shield (motor drivers, other components)? Also, what pins on the shield are active? Some of the pins must be dedicated to controlling the motors, but I can't find any information.Question by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:34:28
The resources part in the wiki contains all documents that allow you to more in-depth comprehend the product.Answer by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:34:28
On the Wiki page, there is a link to a video (on Youku.com), but this video isn't displaying properly. Is there a working demo video of this Bot somewhere? Thanks!Question by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:34:28
OK, well, the problem was that the "Youku" link went to some random 36-minute video that was not related to the ShieldBot.Answer by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:34:28
My Mega has Female socket. There are no pictures with an Arduino mounted.
Since the male pins are on the bottom of the robot, is that where the Arduino fits?
I would think there is no clearance for that?
I am still confused, since I could notQuestion by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:34:28
Hi, the U4 IC is L298 motor driver. Ours wiki page just show the shield bot, arduino can be added to the botton of the board, the picture didn't show it.

So, the Robot Shield has Female connectors?
Do you have to use male headers to connect to the Female connectors on the
Arduino? Upside Down?Question by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:34:28
The Shield Bot has long male+female headers. The male headers extend through to the bottom, so you plug in your Arduino on the bottom (see wiki for pictures). The female headers are for stacking additional shields on top.Answer by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:34:28
I have the Mega2569, will it fit or hang over? It is probably too big?
Will pins match for proper operation?Question by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:34:28
Hi,you can plug your Mega on the shield bot.Maybe it seems a little of ugly with Mega......Answer by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:34:28

1. What is the version of this Shield Bot? I expect V1.1 is currently shipping. But I can not find any version info either in the product and wiki pages.
2. I checked Shield Bot V1.1 wiki page. The schematic Eagle there is old (v0.9b?) and is the saQuestion by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:34:27
Now the shield bot we are selling is version 1.0. And the new version v1.1 will be on sell sooner. We would add the new schematic to wiki after the new one on sell.Thanks for your attention.Answer by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:34:27
