Grove Starter kit for Arduino&Genuino 101


Grove system is designed to connect a processor to the real world through different transducers (such as sensors and motors), expansion boards and Grove wires which look like a ribbon cable. With Grove system, you will not bother to handle excessive and complicated connections as you used to do. No soldering tool, breadboard and jumper wire were required. You just need to plug plenty of transducers to development board with base shield expansion boards and Grove cables. Grove system is very helpful for accelerate your project development process, especially for a novice.

Getting Started

Fundamentals with Arduino

You need to know some essential knowledge if it is the first time that you get involved with Arduino. We have prepared some documentations for you to start with Arduino quickly and effectively. You can visit

Arduino Sketches (basic example for each module)

After you have gotten an LED blinking (for Windows user, you can find it at, you can find other versions for Mac OS and Linux variants at ), you still need to get familiar with Seeedstudio Grove system at And now, you can do some more practical quizzes which are specialized designed for this kit. Download the sketches of quizzes at

Help us make it better

Thank you for choosing Seeed. A couple of months ago we initiated a project to improve our documentation system. What you are looking at now is the first edition of the new documentation system. Comparing to the old one, here is the progresses that we made:

  • Replaced the old documentation system with a new one that was developed from Mkdocs, a more widely used and cooler tool to develop documentation system.
  • Integrated the documentation system with our official website, now you can go to Bazaar and other section like Forum and Community more conveniently.
  • Reviewed and rewrote documents for hundreds of products for the system’s first edition, and will continue migrate documents from old wiki to the new one.

An easy-to-use instruction is as important as the product itself. We are expecting this new system will improve your experience when using Seeed’s products. However since this is the first edition, there are still many things need to improve, if you have any suggestions or findings, you are most welcome to submit the amended version as our contributor or give us suggestions in the survey below, Please don’t forget to leave your email address so that we can reply.

Happy hacking
