JetPack - Bluetooth Shield for Arduino Robots

$7,627

199

The JetPack is an Arduino Wireless programming shield + a motor shield that fits onto an Arduino microcontroller. Now your arduino can be effortlessly programmed over Bluetooth from your PC, receive sensor data etc from your project wirelessly. It additionally has a motor driver for driving 2 DC motors or a stepper motor. No more plugging in your Arduino into your PC and running behind bots. JetPack brings you over the air firmware upgrade and over the air debugging to make Arduino development easy and fun in any environment.

Fastest way to build Robots/Cars

JetPack has a motor driver IC. Just add your motors and wheels and your robot is ready to go.

Why JetPack?  

All Arduino enthusiasts out there know how annoying it is to have to plug in your Arduino project into a computer every time they have to upload a sketch, debug or read some information over serial monitor, especially if the field where the project is employed doesn’t make it any easier(like an Arduino monitoring the vitals of a greenhouse. You always can’t have wires dangling around if you’re uploading sketches, debugging in the field ). The problem is further aggravated if you’re working on mobile robotics projects. You’ll have to let your robot loose, run behind it, bring it back to the computer to make changes in the code, debug etc.

JetPack solves just this and is simply perfect for any Arduino project, especially robotic projects. You can make programming Arduino totally hassle free, remotely monitor data in real time additionally we are providing motor drivers with which you can run two DC motors or a stepper motor. Grab your JetPacks for wireless programming!

Risks and challenges

JetPack is ready and tested so there are no risks related to product development here.
Regarding manufacturing, we have developed other boards with the same manufacturer so we believe things should move without delay. We also have prior Kickstarter experience, this has helped us decide the best shipping method for our backers.
Developing a hardware product involves many challenges. If we face any unexpected problems we will keep our backers informed and would arrive at the best solution in the least time.
