Introduction for Freshmen to Embedded Systems Using LEGO Mindstorms
Kim, Seung Han; Jeon, Jae Wook
IEEE Transactions on Education, v52 n1 p99-108 Feb 2009
The purpose of the course presented here is to introduce freshmen to embedded systems using LEGO Mindstorms, under an ANSI-C programming environment. The students build their own LEGO robots, make programs for them using ANSI-C, and operate them. By creating these LEGO robots, the students become more motivated, learning the basic concepts of embedded systems and how these concepts can be applied to real world problems. (Contains 1 table and 17 figures.)
