With a GrovePi+ board and 12 carefully selective Grove sensors with cables, this starter kit gets you up and running with the Raspberry Pi quickly. Just slip the GrovePi+ board over your Raspberry Pi and connect sensors to the board, and you are ready to start developing things with the powerful platform.
The GrovePi+board is stacked on top of the Raspberry Pi board without the need for any other connections. Communication between the two occurs over the I2C interface. All Grove modules connect to the universal Grove connectors on the GrovePi+ shield via the universal 4 pin connector cables which are included.
The Grove modules work on analog and digital signals, connect directly to the ATMEGA328 microcontroller on the Grove Pi+. The microcontroller acts as an interpreter between the Raspberry Pi and the Grove sensors. It sends, receives, and executes commands sent by the RaspberryPi.
The GrovePi+ board is compatible with Raspberry Pi A+,B,B+/2.
