A 3,000-Foot Look at NXT Programming Environments

Abstract

Building a NXT robot is fun and the result is commonly pleasant to behold. Yet, a robot that does not actually do anything is not a real robot; a robot is defined as “an electromechanical device that can perform autonomous or preprogrammed tasks.” The fun of looking at a newly built robot is nothing next to the pleasure of watching your own creation walking, driving, grabbing, avoiding, recognizing—in a nutshell, behaving—even if its behavior is sometimes (some might say most of the time) different from the one you originally intended.
