Adjust 1Sheeld above the motor shield.

Place the 4 AA batteries in the battery holder.

step 3: Uploading the code

Now it’s time to plug Arduino to your PC/Laptop using the USB cable and then switch 1Sheeld to the upload mode and upload the code “sketch” using CodeBender after that return the switch back to the communication mode.

Step 4: Powering up the System

The two wires coming out from the battery holder are the 5V “red” and GND “black” connect them to the motor shield 5V to the “+” sign and GND to the “-” sign.

step 5: Connect 1Sheeld

Open the application in your smartphone and then press scan then your 1Sheeld number will appear press the number to connect.
