You can build some amazing projects with LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT. For your next project, try connecting to the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT brick via Bluetooth®. In this project, you learn how to communicate using text commands sent over the Bluetooth Serial Port Profile. Bluetooth is useful for close-range communication between two devices.
You start by pairing the NXT brick to your computer, so the device is visible in MATLAB®. Then you can get a list of available Bluetooth devices, view details of the NXT brick, and set up the connection. The example walks you through the command and response formats the LEGO MINDSTORMS communication protocol uses. You’ll also learn the correct byte structure to play a sound on the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT brick.
