Auto cruise & collision
avoidance control (easy-Follow - Lego prototype): A
software project on how to develop a car that can follow another car on
a highway. The system was developed in nxtOSEK and a prototype was made
Another NXT Ballbots: Look at the larger one which is balancing on a soccer ball!
ROBOCON 2011: 2011 year model of NXTway-ET has a motor controlled
tail. The tail allows to make the robot run faster than 2010 year model
trickey bonuses such as limbo gate and sumo with a coke bottle.
Robot drawing system: A nice application using nxtOSEK (C++) that draw EPS
with a LEGO-robot using a marker. It uses a new advanced gyroscope
CruizCore XG1300L to estimate accurate position of the robot.
Yellow Cube Machine (Rubik's Cube
Impressive and very fast Rubik's cube solver. According to author's
comments on YouTube, programs of the 2 NXT are written in C++
2010 (in Japanese): ET ROBOCON 2010 provides more
challengeable race track includes see-saw, stairs. Some
teams already have it done! The competitions are on going and the
final championship will be held in December.
Sorter: Students of Aalborg University published an
interesting project which uses two NXTs working togheter via RS485
to sort candies by color.
Bike-GS: There is no trick. Amazingly, these NXT bikes are
dynamically balanced by steering control with a Hitechnic Gyro Sensor.
These are designed in Embedded
Coder Robot NXT (MATLAB/Simulink) which uses nxtOSEK as the runtime
environment. Great Job!
ET ROBOCON 2009 (in
Japanese) : ET ROBOCON is a robotics competition for embedded
system engineers/students in Japan. In 2009, NXTway-GS based line
traceing robot and nxtOSEK are used as hardware/software platform for
competitions. The cometition is on going and over 250 teams have worked
on NXTway-GS and nxtOSEK! A YouTube video of a robot (under
developement) is published by a team.
