 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I'm working on a new shield for my Arduino for use in robotics and process control.  Right now, I have a setup with 6 R/C servos, and am going to add the 6 PWM outputs, 4 analog inputs, and a Microchip MCP23017 I2C GPIO expander. Unfortunately, using I2C takes away two analog inputs. smiley-sad I will have three pin headers for all connections, which are used by R/C servos and sensors.

Is there other interest in this type of shield?

My first project with Arduino is to create a small robot using an Arduino Decimilia as its "brain."  smiley It's body is one of the media containers CD/DVD media comes in, with the center spindle removed to route cables though.
