Product description : The Arduino Sensor Kit is made for Makers who have just started using Arduino to explore the vast space of electronics and programming. This kit teaches how to connect and program basic Grove modules that includes both sensors and actuators along with the Arduino Uno. Grove is an open-source, modulated, and ready-to-use toolset and takes a building block approach to assemble electronics. This Kit includes a Base Shield to which the various Grove modules can be connected both individually, or together in various combinations to create fun and exciting projects. All of the modules use a Grove connector, which connects each of the components to a Base Shield in just a few seconds. The Base Shield can then be mounted on to an Arduino UNO board and can be programmed using the Arduino IDE. Instructions for connecting and programming the different modules are also included in this kit. This kit was elaborated in collaboration with Seeed Studio and provides the Arduino community with the opportunity to build projects with minimal effort of both wiring and coding. This kit acts as a bridge to the world of Grove and provides a flexible way for Makers to extend their projects to include other complex Grove modules. The Kit comes includes access to an online platform with all the instructions required to plug, sketch and play with the different Grove Modules.
Arduino Uno R3. In addition to all the features of
the previous board, the Uno now uses an ATmega16U2 instead of the 8U2
found on the Uno (or the FTDI found on previous generations). This
allows for faster transfer rates and more memory. No drivers needed for
Linux or Mac (inf file for Windows is needed and included in the Arduino
IDE), and the ability to have the Uno show up as a keyboard, mouse,
joystick, etc. Never fear for accidental electrical discharge, either
since since the Uno R3 SMD also includes a plastic base plate to protect
it! The Uno R3 also adds SDA and SCL pins next to the AREF. In addition,
there are two new pins placed near the RESET pin. One is the IOREF that
allow the shields to adapt to the voltage provided from the board. The
other is a not connected and is reserved for future purposes. The Uno R3
works with all existing shields but can adapt to new shields which use
these additional pins.
