Re: How do I program a Sensor with C and no TP libraries

I agree, I started by NQC and NXC for Lego Mindstorms, then C++ for Arduino, and then tried some steps on the Pi using the Geany IDE and wiringPi.
(Now currently even also qt designer with wiringPi libs.)

It really depends upon what your want to do.

This will al...

Controlling my Mindstorms ev3 via Python from Raspberry Pi

Hi all,

I want to make a simple Python program that is running on my Raspberry P3 b+ controlling my Lego MIndstorms EV3.

How do I get started? And how should I connect, via Bluetooth? Does someone have a sample script that I can use as a starting point?

Thanx in advance

Re: Autonomous Indoor Car

Given you are reading the black, you could out colours stripes to indicate where it is in the black. An alternative to NFC.
Pass three red stripes, 1 blue, 4 blue etc.


Lego Mindstorms EV3 could mock that up quickly to see how it works (if you have access to one). Great things for this.
