I am a senior applied mathematics major attending Norfolk State University, and I am working with Dr. Humphries in the Computer Science Department on robotics. For the past couple weeks I have been building and learning to program the Lego Mindstorm NXT. Before this summer I did not know much about the mindstorm NXT, but so far I have built a few different robots and programmed them using LabView, a picture based programming language. I have found the building of the robots to be the easiest, and programming the robots is not too bad. The only problems that I have come across are that the weight of the robot can become too heavy for the wheels of the robot, and the robot seems to not travel straight when its supposed to. Otherwise, this summer so far has been a fun learning experience.
