NXT-Spy – Start of the project

Yeay it’s the beginning of my honours project!

To start with something, I have decided to start a blog because it implies finding a name and doing a good graphical design for it. For the name, it will be NXT-spy (NXT because the robot used is a Lego Mindstorm NXT robot and spy because the aim of this project is to mount a camera on the robot and have a wider control range).

Because I want to have a 3D model of the Lego robot (to illustrates my presentations and this website), and because I own a version of SolidWorks, I have started looking for the Lego NXT parts on internet.

I finally found what I was looking for on this website : http://www.education.rec.ri.cmu.edu/content/lego/solid_model/index.htm.
Also, because I really think that I;m going to use my brand new Nokia N900 for the embedded phone, I have started modeling it too.

I’m waiting to see Jon Kerridge (my supervisor) to ask him to show me which robot I’m going to use for this project in order to model the robot on SolidWorks with the Lego parts I have found.
