NXT++ Programming Language

NXT++ is a fairly new programming language for the NXT. Its web site and download page are here and its tutorials are here.

From the web site it can be deduced that NXT++ is a client software only; hence one can write C++ programs that remotely controls the NXT brick, but not ones that run autonomously on the brick itself.

You are right, Matthias.

Thanks,

Rick,

I didn't mean that as deprecation of the works of the NXT++ developers, but it's an important limitation for a robotic language in my eyes (I'd even state that these ones aren't "real" robotic languages at all in case we define robots as "autonomous machines").
There are a lot of languages and tools around to write remote applications for the NXT by now, but the supply for languages that allow for writing programs that run autonomously on the brick itself is rather limited still.

for such simple robot as Mindstorms NXT, doesn't matter the way of control, even better to control via computer, because computing engine is more effective. This is cheap way of learning robotic algorithms and doing simple prototypes of robots. In my opinion autonomy could be important in real robots.
