MATLAB meets LEGO Mindstorms - Student Project
Institute of Imaging & Computer Vision
RWTH Aachen University
The RWTH Aachen University student project - MATLAB meets LEGO Mindstorms - has established since winter 2007 as a required course for Bachelor of Sciene students of Electrical Engineering, Information Technology and Technical Computer Science. In this project the students learn how to use MATLAB for digital signal processing. Based on known mathematical basics the students have to do signal measurements and analyse the characteristics of the different LEGO Mindstorms NXT actors and sensors in the first half of the project. In the second half they are motivated to develop and program their own robots. As the pictures below give a first impression, the individual and creative ideas of robots e.g. maze solver, morse en- and decoder and scanner robots, are unlimited. In winter 2007 over 300 students and 60 supervisors participated in this project and developed and programmed 100 robots based on the RWTH - Mindstorms NXT Toolbox for MATLAB.
