 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I am doing a science olympiad project called Robo-Cross and I have the Seeed Studio motor shield V1.0 (http://www.seeedstudio.com/wiki/Motor_Shield_V1.0). This was given to me and I would really like to use it for this project, but nowhere can I find if there is a way to take inputs while using this shield. It looks like it takes some of the I/O for the DC motor terminals and all the rest for servo outputs. If anyone could find a way to wire in inputs, that would be great.

Yes, but didn't it also say that those grove pins were for servo output, not for inputs?

yes, you can use small servos (not recommended), but as schematic shows, there are two i/o pins to be reached in each of them
..(in addition to 5V and GND)
