Year 12 Systems Engineering Project

I think you could use the same arduino board. Even though the shield connects to all the pins it only uses the ones you program it to. So chances are you could connect your servo shield and bluetooth module to the same Uno with no problems.

Hi Stephen, it’s been a while.
I’ve finished the tank component of the project and now I am up to the robotic arm component. I’ve constructed the robotic arm already and have purchased the Adafruit 16 Channel Servo Shield but I am currently stuck with the coding of the servos for the robotic arm. I initially wanted to control the arm via Bluetooth but if there is an easier way to control it, I’ll change my plans. Could I please have some help?

Hi Daniel,

Sorry for the slow response, I’ve been traveling for a while. Here is a great how-to on a bluetooth controlled robotic arm using servos:
