So senior year of University has rolled around at last and we are finally getting the chance to apply our knowledge from the past three years in our Senior Design class. For my senior design project I wanted to make a robotics shield that's compatible with the Arduino Uno board and since this class is supposed to prepare us for industry, our professors want us to do some market research and make sure our final product is marketable.
So my question for the hive mind is, what would you guys like to see in a microcontroller shield?The basic template that I've drawn up so far has the following featuresPowered 3 Pin Headers for Servos and Sensors3.3V Power supplyPlug for a LiPo batteryOnboard battery monitor and charging circuit
So do you guys have any suggestions on what I should add? What are the most commonly used features in your robots? Thanks in advance for all of the help!
Motors often tend to need more voltage not 3.3v, but a lot of other things need 3.3 volts.
