Arlo with an Arduino Uno & BOE Shield Brain

Ready for a bigger Arduino-powered BOE Shield-Bot?  Try mounting your Board of Education Shield with an Arduino Uno on the Arlo!  After a couple connections and a few simple tests, any Shield-Bot code will run.  The time it takes for the Arlo to go distances and execute turns is different, so you will have to adjust some numbers in your sketches, but after that the Arlo will run Shield-Bot code like a champ.

  • If you have not done so already, complete the Arlo Assembly Tutorial, up to but not inlcuding the optional Top Deck Assembly.
  • Grab your Arduino Uno mounted on a BOE Shield, and the programming cable, then get started!
