Arduino + Lego NXT = Arduway

Introducing the first robot which uses LEGO NXT components (motors, wheels, …) and which is not driven by the standard NXT “brain” but it is instead driven by Arduino ( www.arduino.cc ).

    @MAcDaTHo I didn’t know the nunchuck had a gyroscope.
    For this kind of project I do NOT recommend to use accelerometers or gyroscopes.
    You should use a compass, that provides the angle (instead of angular velocity or angular acceleration). This makes it easier… if you build a math model you’ll see why.
    Bye!

  2. I read somewhere …
    I read somewhere that it is possible to read the sensor data of the wiimote nunchuck through i2c. Would it be possible to use the integrated accelerometer and gyroscope for this project?

  3. Man, that’s really …
    Man, that’s really awesome, amazing, I just can’t wait for my arduino to arrive, I want to play with it.

  4. really nice work! …
    really nice work! do you have a blog where we can get some more details? i am very interested

  5. I imagine wire the …
    I imagine wire the several wires in the nxt cables to different rows on the breadboard.

  6. lol, with a …
    lol, with a question,like that you will never be able to do anythink in your arduino….. well just saying, don’t be mad at me…

  7. i have just bought …
    i have just bought an Arduino Kit. How can i connect the sensors which i have from nxt to Arduino?

  8. And how can i …
    And how can i connect them? (I don’t have an Arduino kit but i only an nxt mindstrom kit)

  9. It looks like I …
    It looks like I can’t post link.
    Source code and details of ARDUWAY are available on the Arduino forum and on Sourceforge.

    Google the following: “arduway arduino forum”
    for source code: “sourceforge arduino2lego”

    I’m sorry I’m having a few problems commenting my own video because YouTube for some reason is censoring my comments…

  11. Arduino is driving …
    Arduino is driving the motors but it isn’t providing the necessary current.
    This is why I used a L293 chip.

    Arduino (PWM outputs)—> L293 —> motors
