NXShield: Arduino Powered LEGO Holonomic Platform

I have just developed a LEGO Mindstorms Holonomic Platform Robot powered by an OpenElectrons NXShield for the Arduino Mega.

I have just had 4 day up at Burnie on Tasmania’s North-west coast at the “Brixhibition Burnie” with my Robots. Among the robots I took was a OpenElectrons NXShield Powered Holonomic Platform which survived the abuse from the general public who where controlling it for some 18hrs, without it missing a beat.

The NXShield attaches directly to an Arduino and allows you to connect up-to 4 NXT motors, and 4 NXT Sensors. You can also attach up-to 12 RC Servo motors and analog devices to NXShield. Depending on the NXShield model you can also use add-on Arduiono Expansion Shields. The NXShield is programmed through Arduino sketch programming environment on Arduino, using  Arduino C/C++.
