You can control it from Python over Bluetooth as follow (instruction for a linux distro):
from nxt.bluesock import Bluesock from nxt.motor import Motor ID = '00:16:53:02:9B:DE' sock = BlueSock(ID) brick = sock.connect() motor_a = Motor(brick, nxt.motor.PORT_A) motor_b = Motor(brick, nxt.motor.PORT_B) motor_c = Motor(brick, nxt.motor.PORT_C)
You can then control the motors by calling motor.turn(power, degrees) e.g. motor_a.turn(127, 360).
Motor A moves it along the rail, Motor B pans the sensor head and Motor C tilts the sensor head.
See the python-nxt documentation for more, you should be able to set up and use the sensors too.
The assembly parts for the track are stored in a christmas cardboard box. The box waits for you on a shelf beside the old batteries container. The design for the laser cutter of the ceiling station and connector is stored in a github rep.
Ceiling holders: laser-cut from 3mm ply Screws/threaded rods: M5 Rail: 3x19x4000mm Aluminum
