Building robots with LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT with the the standard parts will only take you so far. Eventually you are going to want to take your robot beyond the parts provided in the factory sealed box. This book has the information on how to make this possible. The most important information contained in the book is the pinout names and specifications for the sensor and motor ports, All the examples and projects use this information to communicate with the NXT block. There is lot of information about the NXT that is well explained and exemplified with the projects. This book will remain a source of reference as I research sensor and control designs for my LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT robots. But even if you never pickup a soldering iron, this book can give a better understanding of the the sensors you buy and ways to use them.
