Simulator für LEGO Mindstorms NXT Roboter Viele Informatik-Angebote für Schülerinnen und Schüler setzen auf den Einsatz von Lego Mindstorms NXT. Damit im Anschluss an die Module und Workshops das Gelernte auch ohne Lego Roboter weiterhin eigenständig vertieft werden kann, wurde ein eigener Simulator entwickelt. Die geschriebenen NXT Quelltexte werden von der Simulationsumgebung interpretiert und der Roboter führt die Aktionen in der virtuellen Welt aus. Der Simulator unterstützt einen großen Anteil der realen Programme, insbesondere jene, die in den go4IT! Workshops verwendet werden und vielen Schülerinnen bereits vertraut sind. Arduino Tutorials - tronixstuff This is the start page for our series of over fifty Arduino tutorials. Each tutorial from chapter zero to thirteen will cover a variety of topics and lessons, then from chapter fourteen each chapter will cover a particular topic. If you are looking to learn about the world of Arduino – this is a great place for beginners to start, or for more experienced users to brush up on their knowledge. Scroll down to read the contents of each chapter. New tutorials, lessons and other articles of interest are announced via twitter, Google+, RSS feed and by email – to keep up, subscribe using the form in the column to the right. If you’d rather have a great book on Arduino – check out my new book “Arduino Workshop” from No Starch Press.
Arduino in a Nutshell Back to ToolsDownloaded over 80,000 times! The Arduino is a family of microcontroller boards to simplify electronic design, prototyping and experimenting for artists, hackers, hobbyists, but also many professionals. This little booklet, written by Prof. Jan Borchers, introduces you to using an Arduino. Free Lego NXT MindStorms NXT-G Robotics Challenges Tutorials At the request of Tasmanian teachers Miss Clare Neilson and recently retired Mrs. Juanita Airey, activities using LEGO's NXT 1 MindStorms Robots have been developed for use in School-based 2-hour sessions. Some, but not all, will work with the new NXT 2 kit (click here for more information). The tutorials are presented as a series of Challenges, which are gradually being converted for Web use. Challenges with an "M" after the challenge number include mentor notes. Challenge numbers greater than 100 use components that are not in the NXT 1.0 Retail or Educational LEGO kits, but are available for separate purchase.
Programmable Brick Utilities Programmable Brick Utilities NOTE: You must have the Fantom drivers installed in order for any of my NXT utilities to function under Mac OSX and Windows. You can get a copy of these drivers from the LEGO.com MINDSTORMS Update page. Linux users do not need the Fantom drivers but they do need libusb 0.1 installed.
NXT Tutorial This tutorial for LEGO Mindstorms NXT is divided in two sections. The “Essentials” are things every NXT programmer should know. Some of these movies have exercises directly under them. It’s important to do these exercises, not just assume you “get it.” Enchanting : Enchanting : Enchanting Enchanting Cards in Multiple Languages Enchanting cards are now available in: Thank you, translators, for your hard work! Enchanting v0.2 is out! Jul 9, 2014 - Enchanting v0.2.4.3 is out and now includes an updated Spanish translation. List of NXT Compatible Bluetooth Dongles I originally posted this list to the NXT Step, but I’m posting here to make it easier to find. Updates will be posted to this page on Robot Square only. This page is a list of Bluetooth Dongles that are confirmed to be compatible with the NXT.
Tutorials: Official MINDSTORMS NXT 2.0 Bonus Models With the help from the Mindstorms Community Partners (MCP), LEGO has released several bonus models for the NXT 2.0 set. However, they are not easily found on the LEGO website. This page is a collection of pictures and links to the bonus projects. mindstorms EV3 chatting room! - LEGO SuperSleuther; Linux, is in a nutshell an operating system. It is open source, which means anyone has the rights to use, modify and distribute freely. Because of the fact it is maintained by a community, it is now not limited to computers, this is why one can find it in the EV3. In the context of the EV3, I speculate that it will provide increased hackability, but it really is too early on to give a concrete answer, because this factor is really dependent on how LEGO go about implementing it. If this revision of mindstorms is anything like NXT, then it probably will. And finally, in answer to your last question, linux does crash, but from my experiences, not very often.
Scratch-ing the LEGO WeDo I have been Scratch-ing with LEGO WeDo kits, and my high school level students absolutely love it! The LEGO® Education WeDo™ robotics kit is normally ear-marked as an elementary school product, and Scratch was developed by MIT for young children to be able to program, but the combination of the two has tapped the interest of my elementary school daughter, my middle school son, and my Computer Science students at the high school level. Link: Scratch – old and new The LEGO WeDo construction kit runs about US $130.00, and Scratch Software from MIT is free (download Scratch 1.4). LEGO Software is available for younger students, but Scratch programming has inherent drag-and-drop blocks that resemble MIT App Inventor interfaces for Android Phones that my advanced students have been using.
Tutorial: Hopper NXT Hopper This little jumping robot jumps around on one foot with the help of a walking frame. Youtube viewers collectively suggested it reminded them of an old lady (I can’t blame them).
