1. NXT-G examples: Motors

    NXT-G examples: Motors

    These examples (ZIP) demonstrate a range of techniques for working with motors in NXT-G. Drive for time This code turns on Motor A for two seconds, and then turns it off. Similar code can be made by adding motors or changing times. Drive to black line There are many ways to...

  2. LabView examples: Projects

    LabView examples: Projects

    Here are some example projects using LabView. Hand Puppet code LabVIEW for MINDSTORMS code for the LEGO hand puppet. Morse Code This example shows how to turn a user input into a corresponding sequence of sounds. Each letter in the alphabet has its own case structure with morse code sounds....

  3. LabView examples: Programming structures

    LabView examples: Programming structures

    These examples (PDF) demonstrate the use of programming structures in LabVIEW. Acceleration and Case Structure This example shows how to use shift registers and case structures to produce an effect similar to acceleration. If the sensor is pressed, the motors stop, but otherwise power is slowly added to the motors. Basic...

  6. Going the distance

    Going the distance

    Design, construct and program a car to run for varying lengths of time. The distances that the car travels should be recorded and plotted on a graph to determine how long the car will need to travel in order to make it stop as close as possible to a randomly...

  8. Robo-Sundae: The Experiment

    Robo-Sundae: The Experiment

    It started as just the idea of creating a robot that could help. We wanted to think of a task or chore and make it easier through the use of LEGO Mindstorms and LabView 2010 for LEGO Mindstorms. We settled on making an ice cream sundae, a task both fun...
