An Intelligent Remote-Controlled LEGO ROBOT with TETRIX Metal Material Bricks
LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT is a popular system for learning robot science, but the way of remote control and carrying capacity is limited by connection wire length and plastics bricks. This study is to design an intelligent wireless controller that can connect with it. Connecting with touch sensor, accelerometer and gyroscope, the controller can sense the user motion in the three dimensions and then transmit sensor data to it through ZigBee network to drive it. Besides, the weak robot structure of LEGO bricks is strengthened by the TEERIX metal material bricks. The purpose of this research is to inspire the students’ interesting and enhance their applied ability of robot field.
