LEGO Mindstorms NXT by James Floyd Kelly

Book Description

LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT has hit the world by storm, giving you the ability to build your own robots and program them to perform all types of actions. What kind of robots? How about five exploratory robots, used to explore the newly discovered tomb of an ancient Mayan king? You are along for the ride with Evan and his archeologist uncle as they explore a Mayan pyramid complete with traps and treasures. Using a variety of NXT robots, the archeology team is able to move deeper into the tomb towards the secrets of King Ixtua. But beware of the traps! The pyramid's design has successfully deterred unwanted visitors through the centuries, and your team will need to be careful and alert. You will learn and use a design methodology that will teach you about the new motors and sensors that your robot can use. Complete building and programming instructions are provided for each robot, allowing you to follow along and learn as you build. Can you help Evan and the team of explorers navigate through the old pyramid and discover King Ixtua's tomb? Read the stories, examine the environments, and build and program the robots that will allow the team to move closer to the secrets of The Mayan Adventure. * This book shows how to design a NXT robot to solve real-world problems. * It includes worksheets that encourage constructive brainstorming techniques. * You'll gain access to four new and unique robot designs. * This book is suitable for both adults and kids exploring NXT.
