Relay Shield

Postby cagiva » Sat Nov 04, 2017 3:06 pm

Are there any plans to develop a Relay Shield for the OpenMV board? Something like the one for the RFDuino.

We could make something like that. What stuff would you like on it? That said, keeping the BOM on it low will be hard. We do have a motor shield in the works. It got delayed but I should get a prototype unit back soon.

This is a perfect project for the proto-shield.

@kwagyeman, pretty much the same components as shown in the above picture. In our case, we'll use to turn a light switch when the camera is operating in the dark hours.

@iabdalkader, I agree. However, it'll be nice to have a shield that is ready for plug-and-play.
