    Version 3.3 is out and should work just fine with all version of ROBOTC for NXT of at least 3.59.  I still need more testers for the dWiFI and NXT2WIFI sensors, so if you’re keen, let me know.  If you’re not keen, then, ehm, don’t. IMPORTANT NOTICE(S)! This suite will […]

    I was incensed when I read that a student by the name of Landon Woollard from Shasta High School in Redding, CA was the first student to get his ROBOTC certification.  First of all, I had no idea this certification even existed,l nobody told me! Imagine that.  Now, second of […]

    With ROBOTC 3.59 came two new sensor types, the sensorCustom and the complimentary sensorCustom9V.  This sensor type was introduced to allow the fast toggling of the dig0 and dig1 lines on the NXT’s sensor ports.  Normally, these pins are either used for RS485, I2C or controlling the light on a […]

    Coming soon: Mindsensors Sensor MUX

    Sensors February 27, 2013 21:33 4 comments

    Mindsensors are about to release a Sensor MUX of their own!  This one works very differently in that instead of doing the polling of the attached sensors for you, it allows itself to become a channel to said sensor.  So, in essence, you send it a command, like “give me […]

    ROBOTC 3.59.0 BETA available now!

    The fine folks at Robomattter have released a new beta.  Now, I don’t think it should be called a beta, but I’m sure they have their reasons for that.  It fixes quite a number of issues that were reported in 3.54 and 3.55.2.  Thankfully, most, if not all of those […]

    I really love data structures.  That sounded a lot less geeky in my head, but it’s true.  It was my favourite subject when studying computer science and I have a few good books on the subject.  I don’t pretend to understand the math behind most of them.  In any case, […]

    Stacks are used a LOT in computing.  The CPU in your laptop or PC, your mobile phone and iPad all have one thing in common, they all use stacks, without exception.  So what is a stack you ask yourself?  Well, think of what a stack of things is in real […]

    Hurray, ROBOTC has support for pointers!  “That’s nice,” I hear you say, “but what are they?”  That’s a good question.  I’ll try to explain in this tutorial.  This tutorial is the first of a couple that will show you the kinds of things you’ll be able to do with pointers. […]

    Please insert token: strtok() for ROBOTC

    I’ve been very busy working on a completely revised driver for the Dexter Industries DWiFi and I needed a clean way to tokenise a string that had a single character as a separator.  ROBOTC didn’t seem to have a strtok() which is what you’d use if you were using gcc […]

    A new Driver Suite is here for your installing pleasure.  The NXT2WIFI is pretty much done as far as I am concerned.  I may add some nice wrappers for sending Tweets and that sort of thing but maybe someone else can do that and I’ll add the code to the […]
