About the Book

LabVIEW for LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT by Michael Gasperi illustrates through many detailed examples how to write programs in LabVIEW that execute entirely on the NXT and that directly control the NXT using programs that run on a computer.

Using the robotic construction projects included with the retail LEGO Mindstorms NXT product the author shows how advanced tools from the LabVIEW Toolkit can be used to build more versatile and sophisticated projects. These include both typical robotics applications and several of a more laboratory or industrial nature to show computer control with the NXT as a data acquisition and control device. Advanced NXT topics like Data Files, Bluetooth, and I2C communications are also treated as well as how to connect the NXT to the internet with a web server.
