National Instruments Corporation (UK) Ltdvisit website

 

Lego Mindstorms NXT enables engineers and scientists of any age (whether or not they are children!) to build and program robots.

LabVIEW - the power behind Lego Mindstorms NXTThe Lego Mindstorms NXT software enables robot programs to be written with ease and uploaded to the NXT controller via a USB or Bluetooth connection. Built on LabVIEW, the intuitive drag-and-drop software is compatible with both Mac and PC platforms. Lego Mindstorms NXT enables robots to be designed and programmed in a way that does not impinge on creativity.

With multicore processors now commonplace and capable of delivering substantial performance improvements over single-core processors, even C programmers are starting to convert to LabVIEW, with its built-in mutlithreading capability that is intuitive to use thanks to the graphical programming environment. Lego Mindstorms NXT is an excellent introduction to the power of graphical programming.
