Lego NXT Science Bot as a Dynamics Trolly
Building Instructions for the Science Bot.
Program for the Science Bot
When the Science Bot is ready to go, the program removes the old data file and then records the number of 1/16 rotations (this corresponds to 1cm distance traveled. The distance and the time is recorded. This information is then sent to the PC as a comma separated file and then graphed in Excel.
As assembled the science bot has uses an acceleration sensor (not used in this program) and one of the old RCX mindstorms rotation Sensors.
The yellow box on the side is an old rpm sensor, which works independently of the mindstorms.
