Underwater Robot with the NXTBee 3

Brane wrote us with a project he did for his engineering coursework that uses our NXTBee XBee Radio for LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT:

I just though that I should mention that I have used a pair of your nxtBee modules for a final year engineering project where I built an underwater vehicle using a lego mindstorms kit.

I use a pair of 900mhz Xbee pro‘s to achieve real-time underwater communications.The vehicle is controlled using an xbox 360 controller connected to a laptop. A software controller can also be implemented.

I use the nxtbee’s to relay the controller commands and receive telemetry data from attached gyroscopes and accelerometers.

    Hello Christopher,
    We might be able to help you out. I would recommend looking at the downloads section first. Here: http://www.dexterindustries.com/download.html#NXTBee There are a number of examples in the difference programming languages that should help you get started with the NXTBees. There is a manual page here: http://www.dexterindustries.com/manual/nxtbee/

    And you also may want to look at our blog under the tag “Wireless” for more examples and projects: http://www.dexterindustries.com/blog/category/products/wireless/

    I hope this helps. Good luck with your competition!
