Hi Arduino Community,
Last month I completed building my arduino controlled OWI robotic arm which is pretty cool, but the next step I would like to take is to be able to control it over the internet, and possibly included a webcam so anyone can connect to my server and control the arm. But first things first, I need to be able to work it myself.
I've been playing the an ethernet shield that I bought and it seems pretty simple, now I was wondering whether it would be possible for a single arduino to control both a motor shield and an ethernet shield. I looked up the pin usage from shieldlist.org and the only pins (excluding SD) that they share are MISO, MOSI and SS. Now I only know a little about how these work but I get the impression that you should be able to have multiple 'slaves' connected to the one 'master', the arduino.
Any help would be appreciated. If I do get it working then I'll post the IP address on these forums so people can have a little play, that should freak out my lil brother
