Arduino enthusiasts that are searching for a wireless programming Arduino shield, which includes a motor shield and is compatible with development boards may be interested in a new piece of hardware created by Georjaiwin called the Jet Pack.
The JetPack Arduino Shield has been designed to provide an easy way for developers to program Arduino boards using Bluetooth directly from your computer, without the need for a cable connection as well provide the ability to receive sensor data back from your project wirelessly.
Watch the video below to learn more about the Arduino Wireless programming shield + a motor shield that has taken to Kickstarter to raise the funds it requires to go into production. Its creator explains a little more about its inspiration and design.
All Arduino enthusiasts out there know how annoying it is to have to plug in your Arduino project into a computer every time they have to upload a sketch, debug or read some information over serial monitor, especially if the field where the project is employed doesn’t make it any easier(like an Arduino monitoring the vitals of a greenhouse. You always can’t have wires dangling around if you’re uploading sketches, debugging in the field ). The problem is further aggravated if you’re working on mobile robotics projects. You’ll have to let your robot loose, run behind it, bring it back to the computer to make changes in the code, debug etc.
It additionally has a motor driver for driving 2 DC motors or a stepper motor. No more plugging in your Arduino into your PC and running behind bots. JetPack brings you over the air firmware upgrade and over the air debugging to make Arduino development easy and fun in any environment. JetPack has a motor driver IC. Just add your motors and wheels and your robot is ready to go.
We have extended all Arduino pins to the shield. You can even stack another shield on top of this. Now make your Arduino projects wireless! and create incredible projects.
