using a arduino uno to use arduino shields on rpi

Sun Oct 13, 2013 7:29 am

hello
i would like to connect some arduino shields to my raspberry pi.
after some search i found 2 bridges : one from cookinghacks and alamode.
they cost between the 35 and 40 dollars ex shipping
when i search on ebay for a arduino uno it cost 11 dollars
can i use the uno as bridge and let the pi run all the scripts,
by example i hook up a nfc shield i need it to send a signal to my pi when the acces card is detected

Hi,

Have you seen these, not the cheapest option but you have the option of running stand alone or through the pi. I've got one but must confess not got round to trying it yet, I've seen quite a nice joystick shield my first project was going to try and get that sorted wit PiMAME...

The suggestion to use a Uno seems sensible. You just need to ensure that any shields you use are compatible with the Uno.

hello i have seen a few of those to but sins that a arduino uno can run on itself and is a bit cheaper i was wondering if it was possible
