The Intelligent Control Software is a stand-alone application that enables students to remotely control a LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT robot or a TETRIX® robot powered by the NXT Intelligent Brick. The application enables students to gather real-time sensor data through a graphical display on a computer, providing information about the robot’s remote environment. Students can use a Logitech joystick controller with USB connection to the computer and uniquely assign joystick button functionality to control a TETRIX robot powered by the NXT Intelligent Brick. The application is capable of controlling the TETRIX DC motors and NXT motors, as well as reading values of the light, sound, and ultrasonic sensors. With all motor control and sensor readings performed over Bluetooth, this application enables students to have their robot explore an environment unseen from the base computer, thus simulating a real-world, remote-controlled robot mission! Requires Bluetooth connectivity. This software is Mac OS X, Windows XP, and Vista compatible.
