Going far beyond the implementation of the communication protocol, certain feature and parameter combinations are hidden from the user to focus more on essential and robot–related problems. For example, instead of requiring knowledge about specific sensor settings, operation modes, and timeout periods in order to operate the NXT sensors, straightforward instructions are provided for simple actions such as “open sensor, retrieve data”. Also complex I2 C command sequences, which are used with digital sensors, are combined into single functions.
Since software which is compatible to different operation systems can easily be distributed in bigger education projects, the framework is designed in MATLAB to run on Windows, Mac OS, and on Linux platforms. Furthermore low–level implementation details for hardware interaction (such as certain drivers or external libraries) are masked by a universal abstraction layer. Thus, the users are able to utilize both Bluetooth and USB connections to the NXT promptly without making any modifications to their program code.
OpenLight(SENSOR_1, ’active’); % initialize light sensor light = GetLight(SENSOR_1); % get light sensor value Listing 3. Reprogramming of the program code in Listing 2 using high–level functions. In addition to the high–level features, the RWTH – Mindstorms NXT Toolbox provides applications for motor and sensor data monitoring. g. the initialization of parameter settings, sensor tests, or calibration processes are often necessary for the development of individual control algorithms, the users are able to test and measure sensor characteristics, as illustrated in Fig.
