ROBOTC, a C-Based Programming Language for Robotics
ROBOTC is the premiere language for educational robotics. It is a C-Based Programming Language with an Easy-to-Use Development environment. It supports several different robotics platforms, including popular platforms such as the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT and Innovation FIRST VEX. Download its blazing fast, High Performance Firmware to your robot. Using its Interactive Run-Time Debugger, you can easily pinpoint the problems in your programs.
VEX Claw Attachment

|Building with the VEX Robotics System? Need inspiration? This set of building instructions may be just what you need!
This claw-based design features two curved arms, perfect for grasping small objects, like play-pen balls and wooden blocks. The two arms are driven using a single motor, attached to a worm gear. A bumper sensor is included, to let your robot know when it has a firm grasp on an object.
You can …
Apollo, The Littlest LineLeader

|This is Apollo, the smallest NXT based line follower I’ve ever made. It’s loosely based on A-Maze-Ing, which I designed and built quite a while ago.
Apollo is equipped some pretty cool stuff:
The program in this robot is based on the same one I wrote for the Mean Lean Line Leading Machine. I …
Tutorial Videos: Using the Shaft Encoders with the VEX Cortex
Posted by Jesse Flot on Wednesday, November 24th, 2010 | No Comments
|Shaft Encoders, sometimes called a “rotation sensors”, measure the amount of rotation on the shaft, or axle, which passes through the its center. As the axle turns, the encoder “counts”. The shaft encoder measures 360 counts per revolution, and counts up for forward movements and down for reverse. By monitoring the axles connected to your robot’s wheels, the encoders allow you to control the overall distance …
ROBOTC for Beginners

|We are working on making ROBOTC simpler and more beginner friendly! Here is our documentation for some new, simplified functions. Each function can be used both with and without parameters! (Everything is designed to work for the default REMBOT, but is customizable through parameters for more advanced users.)
Take a look and let us know what you think!
NOTE: we have not yet released this version of ROBOTC to the public.

|Thanks DiMastero for posting this!
For those of us who have encountered obstacles with our robots that always seem to derail our current path, you will appreciate this robot.
DiMastero has figured out a way to solve our woes dealing with unleveled ground.

|Part Lego, part Arduino, part BoeBot, this is Frankenfollower. This robot was programmed in ROBOTCfor Arduino, a port that is still in alpha stage of development but can be used quite nicely for programming the Arduino Duemilenova. Other Arduino variants will be supported very soon.
The Arduino port of ROBOTC has some really cool features:

|Big thanks to DRV47 for posting this!
We have just finished our new project: an NXT Binary Calculator built with a single NXT 2.0 kit and some standard 4×2 LEGO bricks (actually, anything with colors will do). We have both designed and programmed the robot (using RobotC).
