The Balance Shield uses an MPU6050 which is the world’s first integrated 6-axis motion-tracking device that combines a 3-axis gyroscope and a 3-axis accelerometer. It connects to the UNO compatible board through the I2C interface. With this sensor, you can get stable angle when the Kalman filter is used.
The Balance Shield also integrated one L298P for driving motors. The L298P is a high voltage (50V), high current (2A) dual channel full-bridge driver. It can drive inductive loads such as relay, DC, and stepping motors.
There are also led indicators, a power switch and a buzzer on the Balance Shield. You can even write your own code to make it play a melody.
A universal serial interface is left for connecting adapters like serial Bluetooth and serial Wi-Fi for communicating with other devices. Four IO pins are left for connecting other sensors or RC receiver for making it more extensible.
