PenemuNXT is up and running!

We have now officially started on our project!

PenemuNXT is a project by Josef Hansson and Peter Forss. PenemuNXT means "explorer" in Indonesian, and that's what it's going to be. We are doing this project as our final main project at our school Berzeliusskolan in Linköping, Sweden. The main reason for the project is to learn more about programming and JAVA, but since we wanted a result we could see and feel for ourselves we decided to build a robot in Lego Mindstorms NXT.

The robot is in its final form going to be able to, using the UltraSonic Sensor from Lego, scan its environment and then wirelessly send it to a server which then processes the data into a map which will hopefully be reasonable close to how the environment actually looks.

The firmware leJOS provides us with the means to program the NXT using JAVA, a language we are already somewhat familiar with and which can be used in other applications as well. The code wil be open source and available through Google Code.

While we go about on our project you'll most likely see all kinds of different smaller robots and programs we create while we familiarize ourselves with the NXT and learn new ways of programming.

Let the project begin!
