The LEGOÂ® MINDSTORMSÂ® EV3 set offers so many new and exciting features that it can be hard to know where to begin. Without the help of an expert, it could take months of experimentation to learn how to use the advanced mechanisms and numerous programming features.
With The LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Laboratory as your guide, youll become an EV3 master in no time.
Mindstorms has two central themes: that children can learn to use computers in a masterful way and that learning to use computers can change the way they learn everything else. Even outside the classroom, Papert had a vision that the computer could be used just as casually and as personally for a diversity of purposes throughout a personâs entire life. Seymour Papert makes the point that in classrooms saturated with technology there is actually more socialization and that the technology often contributes to greater interaction among students and among students and instructors.
The LEGOÂ® Technic system opens a new realm of building possibilities. Using motors, gears, pneumatics, pulleys, linkages, and more, you can design LEGO models that really move.
The Unofficial LEGO Technic Builders Guide is filled with building tips for creating strong yet elegant machines and mechanisms with the Technic system. Author Pawel Sairel Kmiec will teach you the foundations of LEGO Technic building, from simple machines to advanced mechanics, even explaining how to create realistic to-scale models. Sariel, a world-renowned LEGO Technic expert, offers unique insight into mechanical principles like torque, power translation, and gear ratios, all using Technic bricks. Youll learn how to: Create sturdy connections that can withstand serious stress Re-create specialized LEGO pieces like casings and u-joints, and build solutions like Schmidt and Oldham couplings, when no standard piece will do Build custom differentials, suspensions, transmissions, and steering systems Pick the right motor for the jobâand transform its properties to suit your needs Combine studfull and studless building styles for a stunning look Create remote-controlled vehicles, lighting systems, motorized compressors, and pneumatic engines This beautifully illustrated, full-color book will inspire you with ideas for building amazing machines like tanks with suspended treads, supercars, cranes, bulldozers, and much more. Your Technic adventure starts now!
Your guide to building and programming your very own advanced robot using LEGO Mindstorm EV3
LEGO MINDSTORMS is more than just a toy. With a multitude of gears, pins, and beams, you can build fantastic, complex designs. The programming brick is Linux-based, and with dozens of available sensors, it allows you to make incredibly sophisticated robots. Instant LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 goes beyond the example projects that come with the box and helps you to produce a more advanced and functional robot.
Instant LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 is a practical guide that shows you how to advance from the basic lessons included in your EV3 kit, combine core programming commands, and implement tested design principles when building your robot. You will build a basic robot and download a program to make the robot move. You will also write several increasingly complex programs to add functionality to the robot and use a proportional algorithm to track a line with an optical sensor.
Instant LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 will teach you how to make a LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 robot that can navigate and interact with its environment using sensors. You will first be guided through how to make your robot interact with its environment using touch sensors. You will then program the robot to navigate and change direction using a gyro sensor. Next, using a proportional algorithm, your robot will maintain a given distance to a stationary or moving object. You will then be shown how to change parameters using on-board buttons and finally how to use an optical sensor to track a line. Instant LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 is full of step-by-step instructions and illustrations designed to help you build a robot with ease.
What you will learn from this book
A concise guide full of step-by-step recipes to teach you how to build and program an advanced robot.
Who this book is written for
Instant LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 is for both the adult tinkerer who has never touched LEGO before and the experienced LEGO engineer who has evolved from MINDSTORMS NXT to EV3. If you are interested in entering or advising students in robot competitions such as the FIRST LEGO League, the Wold Robot Olympiad, or RoboGames, then this book is a must for you. Even if you havenât purchased your MINDSTORMS EV3 kit yet, this book will give you a good introduction to the platform.
The LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Discovery Book is a complete beginners guide to the EV3 kit from bestselling author and robotics expert Laurens Valk. This full color book teaches you fundamental programming and robotics skills as you build and program powerful robots that move, monitor sensors, and respond to their environments. You will build seven increasingly sophisticated robots like the BRICK SORT3R (a robot that sorts bricks by color and size), the THE SNATCH3R (an autonomous robotic arm), and LAVA R3X (a humanoid that walks and talks). Valk also covers more advanced programming techniques like data wires and variables, and shows you how to create custom remote control programs. More than 100 building and programming challenges throughout encourage you to think creatively and to apply what youve learned to invent your own robots.
Classroom Activities for the Busy Teacher: EV3 A 10 week curriculum package for implementing the LEGO Education EV3 Core Set (45544) in your class. Containing over 20 chapters that follow a planetary exploration storyline, you will be introducing students to the basics of the EV3 Core Set and gradually incorporating sensor and useful programming concepts. All challenges follow a similar structure with an overview project, equipment needed and Teachers notes. Example programs as well as tips and tricks are included to assist the teacher and student worksheets can be either photocopied or downloaded from the website. Full building instructions necessary to construct the RileyRover Base design and all required attachments are also included. In addition to specific Robot challenges, the book also offers activities based around Robots in Society, Flowcharting and Multimedia Presentations. www.damienkee.com
This cable is compatible only with the LEGO EV3 Intelligent Brick, and not with the older LEGO NXT.
Attached your servo motors and sensors to your Intelligent Bricks. These cables can be used by either the new EV3, or the older NXT.
Now you can make robots that know which way is up! The HiTechnic Accelerometer / Tilt Sensor measures acceleration in three axes. It also measures tilt along each axis. Using the sensor, you can measure the acceleration of your robot build robots in the range -2g to 2g. Great for experimenting with acceleration forces in cars, on amusement rides, even on swing sets. This sensor will also tell you if your robot is level so you can build self-leveling robots and much more. Download programming blocks and drivers together with building instructions and examples at HiTechnic.com downloads page.
The Ultrasonic Sensor helps your LEGO MINDSTORMSNXTrobot judge distances and see where objects are! Using the NXT Brick (sold separately), the Ultrasonic Sensor is able to detect an object and measure its proximity in inches or centimeters.
Measure rotation in degrees per second with the HiTechnic Gyro Sensor for LEGO NXT MINDSTORMS. Buy direct from the manufacturer who is the only LEGO authorized 3rd party manufacuture of this and other advanced NXT sensors.
