Ah, interesting!Does anybody know which NXT programming languages are dealt with in the book?
Here's the Table of Contents for Philo's Book:Extreme NXT Table Of ContentsCHAPTER 1 In the Beginning The RCX and the Robotics Invention System The MINDSTORMS NXTCHAPTER 2 In the Box The Sensors The Motors The Lamp The LanguagesCHAPTER 3 Connecting to the NXT NXT Ports Sensor Input Pinout and Signal Description Motor Output Pinout Physically Connecting to the NXT Making Your Connectors Screw Terminal for Passive Sensors RCX Compatibility CableCHAPTER 4 Contact Sensors Touching Wires Electronic Surfboard Switches Parallel and Series Antenna SensorCHAPTER 5 Resistive Sensors Analog to Digital Conversion Ohmmeter Program Measuring Salinity Homebrew Temperature Sensor NXT Digital Thermometer Relative Humidity Sensor Light Sensor Comparison of LEGO and CdS Light Sensor Theremin Braitenberg Vehicle 2 Two Switch InputCHAPTER 6 Potentiometer Sensors Resistance Selection NXT Protractor Pressure Sensor Broom Balancer Bottom Mounted Joystick Top Mounted Joystick for the T-56CHAPTER 7 Voltage Sensors Design of a -5V to +5V Sensor NXT Battery Tester A -15V to +15V SensorCHAPTER 8 4.3V Powered Sensors Hall Effect Sensor Robot Mouse Transistor Buffer Infrared Rangefinder Wall Follower Differential Light Sensor Digital Sundial Enhancing the Transistor BufferCHAPTER 9 Two-Wire Powered Sensors Signals Programming NXT-G NBC Half-Volt Sensor Current Sensor Electronic Whistler Pressure SensorCHAPTER 10 Aftermarket Vendors HiTechnic Mindsensors.com Techno-Stuff Vernier and DCP Microdevelopments LEGO EducationCHAPTER 11 NXT Motor Interfaces The Clapper The Etch-A-NXT The Pneumatic GripperCHAPTER 12 Beyond NXT Motors The Motor Block Output Control Program Lamps Muscle Wires Electromagnets and Solenoids Kinetic Sculpture Relays Doubling Outputs Light Emitting Diodes More Power One MOSFET Amplifier Bipolar MOSFET AmplifierCHAPTER 13 I2C Bus Communication I2C Communications PCF8574 Eight Outs Magic Wand Four Ins and Outs Simon Game Relay Outputs PCF8591 Four Analog Ins Color Sensor Going FurtherCHAPTER 14 Cool Combinations Data Logging NXT-to-NXT Bluetooth Remote Control LEGO Train Station Panoramic Camera Graphics NXT Pong Video Game Remotely Guided VehicleAPPENDIX A Breadboard Construction Technique Solderless Breadboard Building on the Breadboard Soldering Building a Printed Circuit BoardAPPENDIX B References, Links, and SourcesAPPENDIX C Code Listings
i just ordered the book, i must say i am looking forward to getting this maybe more than even a third nxt. since i would put my skills at programming at, well, noobish.. i hope to glean from this even a small% of Philo's knowledge.
Cool! He has tackled the Breitenberg vehicles!Hm...that pulverizes similar recent plans of mine, on the other hand. ;-)
From the table of contents I deduce that the programming languages used are NXT-G and NBC, right?
Wow! I need more coffee!That is quite the collection.I might mention that there are more than one author's name on this book.Chris
Matthias,My assumption is the same as yours: the languages covered are NBC and NXT-G.Rick
The book mostly uses NXT-G with NBC for the I2C and legacy RCX two wire powered sensors. We discuss Robot-C and show some examples of it too, but it is mostly a hardware oriented book.
