Here’s a description of Ole’s talk from GOTO Aarhus 2012
At the Department of Computer Science, Aarhus University we have used the Lego Mindstorms NXT Robotics set to teach a master course in embedded Java programming like simple regulation systems and robotics programming like flocks of robots building a map of an unknown environment.
The Lego sensors and actuators connected to the NXT microcomputer unit are controlled by programs written in the leJOS Java system.
Through a number of lab sessions the students get comfortable with sensor input interpretation and actuator control. At the end of a half year course the students finish a project of their own choice. Examples of projects will be demonstrated.
