Designing your own Arduino UNO Motor Shield

The Nexgen Rover

The Nexgen Rover is an Arduino based robot designed wholly by Nexgen Codecamp Pty Ltd. It is used in our technology related STEM courses aimed at high schools. The robot is based on Arduino technology and runs an Arduino UNO with a motor controller shield on top. This article explains how we designed and manufactured our own motor shield to suit the requirements of our rover.
