Development of the Home Energy Management System Learning Materials Using LEGO MINDSTORMS
Technique and also education for energy saving is attracted attention in Japan. The suggestion about the energy management system utilized embedded technology using microcomputer control and a network system has been proposed. Home energy management system can be produced in replacing with ideas of robot control system. In this paper, we report the project to producing of model of Home Energy Management System utilizing a robot control technology with the LEGO MINDSTORMS Experimentally in PBL and it is developed the teaching and learning materials for high school students who could understand a flow of the energy management and energy saving.
