Robot App™ Description

A self-balancing LEGO robot
The inspiration for this robot is of course Steve Hassenplug's Legway, the world-famous self-balancing LEGO robot. The control program is much more rudimentary than Steve's, but is sufficient for NXTway to keep balanced for a while...

Usage Instructions

In its present state, NXTway is picky on environmental conditions:
* The lighting must not interfere with light sensor. Try your NXT in a dark room, or a room lit only by fluorescent light (fluorescent lamps emits little or no infra-red light so the light sensor is almost insensitive to their light).
* It works best on a clear but non uniform surface. Some patterns give NXTway something to "zero" on.
* When you press the run button, NXTway must be perfectly balanced, as light level measured at that time determines the equilibrium position.
