LabVIEW for MINDSTORMS was written by an expert in LEGO MINDSTORMS with the cooperation of National Instruments to create the definitive guide to programming the NXT using LabVIEW. Using the robotic construction projects included with the retail LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT product the author shows how advanced tools from the LabVIEW Toolkit can be used to build more versatile and sophisticated projects. These include both typical robotics applications and several of a more laboratory or industrial nature to show computer control with the NXT as a data acquisition and control device. Advanced NXT topics like Data Files, Bluetooth, and I2C communications are also treated as well as how to connect the NXT to the internet with a web server.
The book is further set apart by its packaging. A CD is enclosed with each new book containing the LabVIEW evaluation, the LabVIEW Toolkit for LEGO MINSTORMS NXT, and all the programming examples from the book. Everything you need to enhance and extend your robotic design.
--Dave Vernier, Founder & CEO, Vernier Software & Technology
Mike does a great job in showing the reader how to use the MINDSTORMS hardware to open the door to learning the full power of LabVIEW. For those wanting to learn how to use one of the most common programming languages for data acquisition and control, I can think of no better way.
