Embedded Systems - Embodied Agents, Robot Programming in Java for the NXT Mindstorms

A session at GOTO Aarhus 2012

  • Ole Caprani

Monday 1st October, 2012

2:30pm to 3:20pm (CET)

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.
