Thread: NXT Robot

  1. Red face NXT Robot

    Hey everyone!

    I have a NXT Robot, and I was wondering if anyone out there knows anything about the programming software for the Lego Mindstorm Kit. I am trying to program a Rock, Paper, Scissors game for my Robot. I am using an idea book to help me out, but it is a little confusing.

    Thanks!

    Hope to hear from everyone!

    I highly recommend Robot C the GUI system that originally comes with the NXT isn't as functional once u begin to branch out into higher level programs.

    Can you explain what the Robot with the GUI system is? If it is something I need to buy, then I can work something out?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the TRC, 'Sushi! Thanks for chiming in!

    I think Scorch is looking for much simpler advice still. I don't think she's ready for a C compiler yet.

    Scorch - maybe if you told us all what specifically you were "finding confusing" you'd get more targeted help?

    Hey Scorch,

    I teach a class using the NXT robot..or at least I did...stupid budget cuts. GUI stands for Graphic User Interface. Its the software that comes with your NXT. What TechnoSushi was trying to say was that the software that comes with the lego NXT can be a bit limiting. Programming the robot from scratch using a lower level language like C is less restrictive, but more difficult to use. I'm not sure how make it play rock paper scissors...I'll look onto it and get back to you in the next day or so.

    Thanks everyone!

    Jodie, this is a totally different design then my robot, so I so not think the programming is the same, but, thanks for looking. The part I am really confuses me is my robots actions. I have done exactly what my book tells me, but my robot only counts to 1 and moves only once. It also only lets you take 2 turns instead of 3. The programming is a bit complicated, but if anyone has any idea what I might be doing wrong please say so. Thanks!

    I think I might not have some of the wires connected properly. Darkback, so you know what I should look for to make sure the wires are connected properly?

    Thanks!
