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.” Nils Völker - Robotics - Spherical Robot This is a ball-shaped "robot" based on a Lego Mindstorms NXT. It moves in any direction by simply rotating the internal mass horizontally and vertically. At the moment it's remote controlled via Bluetooth from a second NXT. So to be precise it's actually not a real robot more kind of a Rolling-Orbital-Bluetooth-Operated-Thing (to make it short: robot). But seriously: It's planned to implement the ability of moving autonomously later on. LEGO.com Digital Designer Download LEGO Digital Designer 4.3 >> For Mac OSX << Download now
Hacking the LEGO NXT If you are a millionaire and able to buy a LEGO Mindstorms NXT, you may find kind of difficult to hack it or create homemade sensors. I believe you already noticed the particular jack that comes with the NXT. It looks like a telephone jack, but the latch is located in one side, making difficult to connect any other cable. That is not a big problem; filling off the latch from a 6-wires telephone connector (RJ-12) may do the job. Once I was able to connect a telephone cable to the NXT, I started to test the signals. Here is what I found: NXT Programming Software NXT Programming Software These are different ways of writing programs that will execute on the LEGO NXT brick. This list doesn't include all features, but should include enough information to provide a good starting point for you to figure out which software best suits your needs. Notes (1) RoboLab and RobotC both use firmware that comes Standard with some LEGO software.
LEGO MINDSTORMS at LEGOWORLD 2013 These are some of the pictures I took at LEGOWORLD in Utrecht, the Netherlands before the entrance was open to visitors. The setup is different this year, with more opportunities for kids to interact with the new EV3 system. I joined the crew of MCP and AFOLs to help demonstrate EV3 and answer (lots of!)
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).
Fuzzy Line Following NXT Robot Stefan Bracher One of the tutorials within the Lego Mindstorms NXT Software shows how to program a robot that follows a line using Boolean Logic. In the following, an improved version, based on Fuzzy-Logic, is presented. Although a little bit more complex, the program is still implemented using NXT-G Code.
