MINDSENSORS ARDUINO interface

Infos from TheNxtStep (Author: Daniele Benedettelli):
http://www.mindsensors.com/images/pagemaster/NXShieldwithUnow300.jpg

MINDSENSORS has designed this shield that will allow Arduino to replace *ehm* to be integrated into the LEGO MINDSTORMS system.

It will have 4 NXT motor ports, 4 NXT sensor ports and several RC servo motor ports. The NXShield will attach to an Arduino Duemilanove or Uno or similar Arduino clones. (Picture shown here with a Duemilanove)
The programming for the NXShield will be on Arduino, using usual Arduino C/C++ programming environment. There will be only one I2C port, so you can use multiple sensors on the bus only if they have different addresses.

Roberta-Dokument – Hardware des LEGO Mindstorms NXT Systems

Das Roberta-Thema „Hardware des LEGO Mindstorms NXT Systems“ behandelt die Hardwarespezifikation und Hardwareevaluation verschiedener Sensoren für das LEGO Mindstorms-System. Um Kenntnisse über die Genauigkeit und Zuverlässigkeit der Sensoren und Motoren und deren Zusammenspiel mit dem NXT-Baustein zu erhalten wurden zunächst die Hardware des NXT und verschiedener Sensoren spezifiziert.

Anschließend wurden Testreihen mit folgenden Sensoren durchgeführt:

* Tastsensor
* Geräuschsensor
* Lichtsensor
* Ultraschallsensor
* Kompasssensor
* Infrarotsensor
* Beschleunigungssensor

Das Dokument steht zum kostenlosen Download auf dem Roberta-Portal zur Verfügung.

RobertaSim – LEGO Mindstorms RCX Simulator – Free Download for Roberta Teachers

http://roberta-home.de/sites/default/files/images/Roberta-Sim.artikelbild.JPG
From now on the LEGO Mindstorms RCX Simulator – RobertaSim – is ready for download for all certified and registered Roberta Teachers on the internal pages of the Roberta portal.

RobertaSim can be used to simulate LEGO Mindstorms robots (of the Robotics Invention System 2.0 series). The software enables the user to program a virtual robot with the usual programming languages (RIS/RCX code and NQC). The behavior of the real robot to be expected can be observed in real time on the monitor. The virtual robot’s operation has been adapted from the one of the real robot.
