Underwater Robot with the NXTBee

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.
