The SparkFun Ludus Protoshield Wireless is an Arduino compatible
shield designed to make connecting motors and sensors to your
Arduino-based development board as fast and easy as possible.

This wireless Ludus is incredibly handy for throwing together remote
control rovers and small autonomous robots. Simply attach this shield
to your Arduino, attach an XBee, and you will be up and running in no
time. The SparkFun Ludus Protoshield Wireless was developed by our
Education department to help teach any interested individual the
dynamics of wireless motor control through the Arduino IDE and was
lovingly named after their very own mascot.

The heart of the Ludus ProtoShield Wireless is an H-Bridge Motor
Driver. This allows the ProtoShield to drive two DC motors at once in
both directions and brake electronically. The TB6612FNG H-Bridge
Driver is rated up to 1.2A per channel at 13V which means it will
drive a fair variety of hobby motors ranging in power. This Ludus
board also features PWR and GND rails alongside the GPIO pins. Not
only does this help you to avoid the common inconvenience of running
out of GND and PWR pins, but because the pins are arranged with PWR in
the center, plugging in servos is a snap! The PWR rail can even be
switched between 5V (from the Arduino's voltage regulator) and Vin
using the on board slide switches. These features make the SparkFun
Ludus Protoshield ideal for small rover-style robots.

This specific Ludus Protoshield includes an I2C pin-out and a built in
XBee socket, making the Ludus ProtoShield Wireless perfect for setting
up XBee based remote control. Simply plug an XBee module into the
socket on the shield and you're ready to transmit wireless data!
