"The Unofficial LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT Inventor's Guide" will teach you how to successfully plan, construct, and program robots using the MINDSTORMS NXT set, the powerful robotics kit designed by LEGO. This book begins by introducing you to the NXT set and discussing each of its elements in detail. Once you are familiar with the beams, gears, sensors, and cables that make up the NXT set, the author offers practical advice that will help you plan, design, and build robust and entertaining robots. The book goes on to cover the NXT-G programming environment, as well as several unofficial programming languages that have been developed for the NXT set, providing code examples and programming insights along the way. Rounding out the book are step-by-step instructions for building, programming, and testing six complete robots, including "Bumper-Bot: The Exploring Vehicle" and "Claw-Bot: The Hunting Vehicle," that require only the parts in the NXT set; a NXT piece library; and a NXT-G Glossary.
