Although LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT allows anyone to build complex inventions, there are limits to what you can do with what comes inside the box. This book shows you how to advance the NXT with more than 45 exciting projects that include creating a cool magic wand that writes words in thin air, building a remotely guided vehicle, and constructing sophisticated robots that can sense color, light, temperature, and more. All projects are explained with easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions, so you'll be able to create them successfully whether you're a novice or an expert. This book also shows you how to expand the programming software and use the alternative language NXC. New input devices—such as keypads, sensors, and even the human body—are covered, along with fun games such as surfing, PONG, and SIMON. On the serious side, there are classic engineering challenges such as controlling an inverted pendulum, making a robot that follows a wall, and building several light-seeking vehicles. Some projects are just entertaining, such as the Etch-A-NXT; others are useful, such as a motorized camera mount that takes panoramic photographs. This second edition accounts for the important changes found in the next generation NXT, and it also covers the original concepts in greater depth. Details are presented for practically unlimited expansion of the NXT inputs and outputs by using the I2C communications bus, and several power amplifier designs allow the NXT outputs to drive bigger motors. Instructions are also included for adapting LEGO Power Functions motors to work directly with the NXT.

The LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 set offers so many new and exciting features that it can be hard to know where to begin. Without the help of an expert, it could take months of experimentation to learn how to use the advanced mechanisms and numerous programming features. In The LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Laboratory, author Daniele Benedettelli, robotics expert and member of the elite LEGO MINDSTORMS Expert Panel, shows you how to use gears, beams, motors, sensors, and programming blocks to create sophisticated robots that can avoid obstacles, walk on two legs, and even demonstrate autonomous behavior. You'll also dig into related math, engineering, and robotics concepts that will help you create your own amazing robots. Programming experiments throughout will challenge you, while a series of comics and countless illustrations inform the discussion and keep things fun. As you make your way through the book, you'll build and program five wicked cool robots: * ROV3R, a vehicle you can modify to do things like follow a line, avoid obstacles, and even clean a room * WATCHGOOZ3, a bipedal robot that can be programmed to patrol a room using only the Brick Program App (no computer required!) * SUP3R CAR, a rear-wheel-drive armored car with an ergonomic two-lever remote control * SENTIN3L, a walking tripod that can record and execute color-coded sequences of commands * T-R3X, a fearsome bipedal robot that will find and chase down prey With The LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Laboratory as your guide, you'll become an EV3 master in no time.

With its colorful, block-based interface, The LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 programming language is designed to allow anyone to program intelligent robots, but its powerful features can be intimidating at first. The Art of LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Programming is a full-color, beginner-friendly guide designed to bridge that gap. Inside, you’ll discover how to combine core EV3 elements like blocks, data wires, files, and variables to create sophisticated programs. You’ll also learn good programming practices, memory management, and helpful debugging strategies—general skills that will be relevant to programming in any language. All of the book’s programs work with one general-purpose test robot that you’ll build early on. As you follow along, you’ll program your robot to: * React to different environments and respond to commands * Follow a wall to navigate a maze * Display drawings that you input with dials, sensors, and data wires on the EV3 screen * Play a Simon Says–style game that uses arrays to save your high score * Follow a line using a PID-type controller like the ones in real industrial systems The Art of LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Programming covers both the Home and Education Editions of the EV3 set, making it perfect for kids, parents, and teachers alike. Whether your robotics lab is the living room or the classroom, this is the complete guide to EV3 programming that you’ve been waiting for.

Mit den Fortschritten in der Mikroelektronik wächst auch der Bedarf an VLSI-Realisierungen von digitalen Signalverarbeitungseinheiten. Die zunehmende Komplexität der Signalverarbeitungsverfahren führt insbesondere bei Signalen mit hoher Quellenrate auf Anforderungen, die nur durch spezielle Schaltungsstrukturen erfüllt werden können. Dieses Buch behandelt Schaltungstechniken und Architekturen zur Erzielung hoher Durchsatzraten von Algorithmen der Signalverarbeitung. Neben alternativen Schaltungstechniken zur Realisierung der Basisoperationen, Addition, Multiplikation und Division werden CORDIC-Architekturen zur Implementierung transzendenter Funktionen vorgestellt. Zur Konzeption von Systemen mit Parallelverarbeitung und Pipelining wird ein allgemeines Verfahren zur Abbildung von Signalverarbeitungsalgorithmen auf anwendungsspezifischen Architekturen erläutert. Hierzu werden beispielhaft spezielle Architekturen für Filter, Matrixoperationen und die diskrete Fouriertransformation erörtert. Architekturen programmierbarer digitaler Signalprozessoren sowie beispielhafte zugehörige Implementierungen sind eingeschlossen. Das Buch soll sowohl Studenten und Ingenieure der Elektrotechnik als auch der technischen Informatik mit Architekturkonzepten der digitalen Signalverarbeitung vertraut machen.
