motor shield - how can I connect sensors?

by rich on Wed Sep 03, 2008 6:45 pm

Hello.
I've just built the motor shield, which is very tidy.

In my robotics project I need to connect a couple of digital sensors and a an analog sensor.

How can I do this with the motor shield in place?

thanks very much!

Hi there.
I'm new to electronics, so sorry if my question (below) is a stupid one, but does anyone have an answer?

I noticed on the top of the motor shield there are holes which appear to be for analog and power pins. Can I just solder headers in here and use the analogs as inputs?

Also, is it possible to assign any of the digi pins as inputs?

Thanks
rich
