Martin Mason, professor of Physics and Engineering at Mt. San Antonio College and ROBOTC user, has developed a new VEXduino Shield. He created a board that you can plug in VEX sensors but, combined with ROBOTC, uses an Arduino to control the robot instead of a Cortex or PIC. Combining the Shield with an Arduino, some VEX parts, and a small breadboard is a perfect recipe for teaching electronics with the ROBOTC for Arduino!
Some of the items he has tested so far:
- 4 VEX 3 wire motors simultaneously running from an external Vex Battery
- 2 Quadrature Encoders
- VEX touch sensor
- VEX line sensor
- HC-04 ultrasonic sensor
- VEX Ultrasonic sensor
