LEGO Mindstorms

The interaction between jBEAM and LEGO Mindstorms enables controlling the interactive system.

LEGO Mindstorms is a product line of LEGO. Main components are besides the programmable LEGO brick sensors and servo motors. Therefore it is possible to build and program robots or other interactive systems.

The Java library Lejos allows the communication between LEGO Mindstorms and jBEAM. With the aid of this connection, it is possible to measure the values of the sensors (infrared sensor, color sensor) or rather define standard values and control consequently these interactive systems. Thereby the AMS works with LEGO Mindstorms NXT and EV3.

This interplay between jBEAM and LEGO Mindstorms was presented by AMS at the World Robot Olympiad in June 2018 in Passau. We sponsor different teams of different ages and are happy about the annual successes. As part of student projects, AMS is constantly developing new programs for controlling LEGO Mindstorms for jBEAM.
