Sensors

This site presents sensors for Lego Mindstorms NXT 2.0 made by me. Use the menu on the right to quickly browse this page.


Bargraph

This little project lets you control 10 LEDs directly from your program. Now every robot you build can signalise anything even in complete darkness.

Accelerometer & Magnetometer

Accelerometer - sensor that can measure accelerations that robot experiences. When held still, it measures earth's acceleration - 1g. Magnetometer - sensor that can measure magnetic fields applied to it. It is so sensitive that it can detect earth's magnetic field and determine where north is. Both sensors are combined in one package. In this way, it is possible to build tilt-compensated compass to detect heading, tilt and other parameters very accurately.
