I’m intending to use several Arduino Boards as a cheap means of controlling a number of RFID Readers which will be used to detect the position of Locomotive Engines on my LEGO Train Layout. That said I need a way of connecting these Arduinos to the Raspberry Pi which is the Master Controller for the layout.
The easiest way of Connecting an Arduino to a Raspberry PI is using USB, however the PI’s USB ports are need for WiFi Keyboard, Mouse, etc. So in many cases USB is out, especially if you are using a Raspberry Pi Model ‘A’.

Raspberry Pi ‘Plate’ or Add-on with 16 Ch. Servo & 16 Ch. GPIO

Over 12 months ago I came across a “I2C: 16 Channel, 12 bit PMW Servo & I2C 23017, 16 GPIO” add-on board for the Raspberry Pi made by a U.K. company called, Pridopia. At the time I thought too myself, “What a great idea”, but I had no immediate use for one. That has since changed thanx to my Raspberry Pi powered ‘LEGO Train Layout‘ I’m currently constructing.
