Arduino Librairy Compiling errors

Hello there,

Minimum material for First Robot

Hello Folks,

Im considering building first robot and would like to purchase this kit


I see that LMR is using a ''Shield'' over his Arduino or PIC. Whats the purpose of it.

Could I simply be using this yourduino boards with motor and servo and voila? Would I be missing anything without a shield.

I also notice that there seems to be a IC already on the yourduino board, would I need extra IC ?
