Programming Lego Mindstorms NXT Book Excerpt:

Teach your robot new tricks! With this projects-based approach you can program your Mindstorms NXT robot to solve a maze, build a house, run an obstacle course, and many other activities. Along the way you will learn the basics of programming structures and techniques using NXT-G and Microsoft VPL. For hobbyists, and students working on robot projects, Bishop provides the background and tools to program your robot for tasks that go beyond the simple routines provided with the robot kit. The programs range in complexity from simple contact avoidance and path following, to programs generating some degree of artificial intelligence * a how-to guide for programming your robot, using NXT-G and Microsoft VPL * ten robot-specific projects show how to extend your robot's capabilities beyond the manufacturer's provided software. Examples of projects include: Maze solver, Robot House Builder, Search (obstacle avoidance), Song and Dance Act * flowcharts and data flow diagrams are used to illustrate how to develop programs * introduces basic programming structures

The Art of LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT G Programming Book Excerpt:

The Art of LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT-G Programmingteaches you how to create powerful programs using the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT programming language, NXT-G. You'll learn how to program a basic robot to perform tasks such as line following, maze navigation, and object detection and how to combine programming elements (known as blocks) to create sophisticated programs. Author Terry Griffin covers essential functions like movement, sensors, and sound as well as more complex NXT-G features like synchronizing multiple operations. Because it's common for programs to not work quite right the first time they are run, a section of the book is dedicated to troubleshooting common problems including timing, sensor calibration, and proper debugging. Throughout the book, you'll learn best practices to help eliminate frustration when programming your robotic creations. This book is perfect for anyone with little to no previous programming experience who wants to master the art of NXT-G programming.

KI 2008 was the 31st Annual German Conference on Arti?cial Intelligence held September 23–26 at the University of Kaiserslautern and the German Research Center for Arti?cial Intelligence DFKI GmbH in Kaiserslautern, Germany. The conference series started in 1975 with the German Workshop on AI (GWAI), which took place in Bonn, and represents the ?rst forum of its type for the German AI Community. Over the years AI has become a major ?eld in c- puter scienceinGermanyinvolvinga numberof successfulprojects thatreceived much international attention. Today KI conferences are international forums where participants from academia and industry from all over the world meet to exchange their recent research results and to discuss trends in the ?eld. Since 1993 the meeting has been called the “Annual German Conference on Arti?cial Intelligence,” designated by the German acronym KI. This volume contains the papers selected out of 77 submissions, including a number of submissions from outside German-speaking countries. In total, 15 submissions (19%) were accepted for oral and 30 (39%) for poster presentation. Oralpresentationsattheconferenceweresingletrack. Becauseofthis,thechoice of presentation form (oral, poster) was based on how well reviews indicated that the paper would ?t into one or the other format. The proceedings allocate the same space to both types of papers. In addition, we selected six papers that show high application potential - scribing systems or prototypical implementations of innovative AI technologies. They are also included in this volume as two-page extended abstracts.
