Chapter 5. What’s New with the NXT?

Solutions in this chapter:

Introduction

Several changes are introduced in the NXT compared with its predecessor, the RCX. This chapter covers the major new technologies in detail, explains how they work, and provides examples of how people have used them in their robots. Specifically, it covers the new LCD, file system, Bluetooth, and digital interfaces. (We intentionally omitted several improvements, because we cover them elsewhere in the book.)The chapter concludes with a discussion of some novel ways in which you can use the NXT thanks to all of these new technologies.
