Introduction to Autonomous Mobile Robotics Using "Lego Mindstorms" NXT
Akin, H. Levent; Meriçli, Çetin; Meriçli, Tekin
Computer Science Education, v23 n4 p368-386 2013
Teaching the fundamentals of robotics to computer science undergraduates requires designing a well-balanced curriculum that is complemented with hands-on applications on a platform that allows rapid construction of complex robots, and implementation of sophisticated algorithms. This paper describes such an elective introductory course where the "Lego Mindstorms" NXT kits are used as the robot platform. The aims, scope and contents of the course are presented, and the design of the laboratory sessions as well as the term projects, which address several core problems of robotics and artificial intelligence simultaneously, are explained in detail.
