Schematics

connecting Grove -Rotary Angle Sensor(P)

it shows on which pin (A0) you have to connect the Grove -Rotary Angle Sensor(P) to the Grove Base shield which is mounted on Arduino 101 .

connecting Grove -LED socket kit

it shows on which pin (D2) you have to connect the Grove -LED socket kit to the Grove Base shield which is mounted on Arduino 101 .

Full Set Up of the Project

this is how the final project look like
