Can Arduino shields be used on Picaxe
April 13, 2012
I'm new to robotics, and just bought my first "LMR start here" robot kit. I haven"t recived it yet, but I am all ready having great plans about how to modify it (as I guess all newbies do).
So I have searched around to see what is out there, and I see that there are a lot of modules (or shields as they seems to be called in the robotics world) that can be conected stright to the Arduino.
So my question is, having just bought a Picaxe-28 Project Board, with a Picaxe-28X1 Microprocessor; can the Arduino shield be used with the Picaxe-28 Project Board?
If so, is that recomended? From what I have read, it seems like Arduino is more powerfull when it comes to programing, so will there be limitations using Arduino shields on Picaxe? And are there any other traps I need to be aware of?
I'm really exited to get started on my first robot, and hope someone out there can give me an answer to my questions.
