The building instructions for these robots, representing five endangered animals---a sloth, gorilla, Komodo dragon, Polar Bear, and frog (a representative of thousands of endangered frogs)---are... More > user-friendly, four-color, and thoroughly tested. Educational activities in math, literacy and critical thinking are included. All robots are built using the most common parts in the LEGO MINDSTORMS Education NXT Set (#9797) and the NXT Education Resource Set (#9648), and are easily modified for use with the NXT 1.0 or NXT 2.0 kits.< Less
The LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT kit consists of 32-bit microcontroller that can be used with a range of sensors and motors. Basically it is a toy which is designed to enable a child of 10 years of... More > age and upwards to construct a robot which will move according to a set of instructions which can be downloaded into the NXT from a PC or Mac computer. The program of instructions is created by stringing a set of icons together on the computer screen so that the required actions can be performed. The basis of the icons is the industry-standard National Instruments LabVIEW® which is a graphical programming language used world-wide by scientists and engineers.< Less
This is a textbook for my robotics course at Hendrix College. It is designed for students who have no prior programming experience. It uses the pbLua language, an interpreted scripting language... More > that is easy to learn. Building diagrams are in full color.< Less
The goal of this book is to introduce vision processing using an Android device. To do this, we will cover the basics of Android programming as well as vision processing. We will also cover using... More > Bluetooth communication, NXT programming using leJOS and introduce you to using Eclipse as an Integrated Development Environment (IDE). We believe individuals learn best by doing, so the book provides step by step guidance and example programs that can be run on your own Android device. Eclipse project files for all of the examples covered in this book can be obtained by contacting the authors.
This book is aimed at beginners to Android programming and/or vision processing. Individuals need not be familiar with Android programming, vision processing or NXT programming using leJOS. Basic Java programming and Eclipse knowledge are assumed.< Less
