    I have some question about EV Shield's function before Purchase.

    1. Using I2C, Can Raspberry Pi use EV Shield by I2C also?

    2. Are their any way to use Ultar Sonic Module or Alternative Solution?

    3. What you recommend Pistoms vs EV Shield if I am familier for both?

    Best regards,
    Uno

    1. Using I2C, Can Raspberry Pi use EV Shield by I2C also?
    Yes, if you are technical enough that is possible.
    You will have to connect the RPi i2c pins to EVShield, figure out power for EVShield.
    And figure out API's that you intend to use.
    2. Are their any way to use Ultar Sonic Module or Alternative Solution?
    Are you referring to Old NXT Ultrasonic sensor?
    That sensor uses non-standard power and non-standard i2c interface, which is not available on EVShield.
    3. What you recommend Pistoms vs EV Shield if I am familier for both?
    I would recommend PiStorms, there are lot more possibilities with RPi.

    Dear,

    Thank you. So, I ordered PiStorms, But also I am considering EV Shield for arduino.

    To make it clear,

    1. If EV Shield provide API (like python library) to use in Raspberry Pi. So could you provide its link?

    2. EV Shield support all official EV sensors include EV3 Ultrasonic Sensor and NTX sensors except Old NXT Ultrasonic sensor. Is it?

    Best regards,
    Uno

    There is no EVShield API on Raspberry Pi, you will have to write it yourself using the existing Raspberry Pi code.
    you can find that code here: github.com/mindsensors/PiStorms

    2. EV Shield support all official EV sensors include EV3 Ultrasonic Sensor and NTX sensors except Old NXT Ultrasonic sensor. Is it?
    Yes.
