Wifi: A Wifi Sensor for LEGO Mindstorms
The Dexter Industries Wifi Sensor allows your robots to connect to the internet and send and receive data. The Dexter Industries Wifi sensor for LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT is a sensor designed to allow your LEGO MINDSTORMS to connect to the internet via a local Wifi network.
The sensor can be used to communicate via HTTP, TCP, UDP protocols. The sensor can connect via WPA, WPA2-PSK, and WEP networks, as well as adhoc networks between the LEGO MINDSTORMS and a wifi enable device such as a cell phone or computer.
The sensor operates with standard 802.11 b/g/n access and can log onto any home network. The Dexter Industries Wifi Sensor connects to the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT via the high speed communications Port 4 and is powered by an external 9V battery.
The sensor is supported in RobotC and NXC.
