    Dexter Industries have unleashed another sensor into the wild, the dLight.  I sort of ran my mouth a little, when I released my previous version of the Driver Suite by mentioning it then.  However, it’s out now and available from the Dexter Industries website. So what exactly is the dLight?  […]

    Coming soon: Mindsensors Sensor MUX

    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 […]

    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 […]

    There’s a new instalment of the Driver Suite.  It’s still a bit of a work in progress at the moment, with regards to the RS485 stuff.  I’m busy overhauling the RS485 code in the Dexter Industries dWifi and NXTBees, so for now, I would advise you to use temporary ones […]

    I am sure you’ve seen the pictures of the Wii Nunchucks attached to the NXT before on the Internet.  However, they either required a very specific Nunchuck to be used or some modifications on the device itself.  Dexter Industries, together with Matthew Richardson have come up with a great new […]

    It’s finally here, a little overdue, but I had a really good excuse, I was at a robotics event on Saturday and I was fixing some last minute bugs!  Better to be late than buggy, right?  That’s not saying there are no bugs in this release, of course. IMPORTANT NOTICE(S)! […]

    It’s here, folks!  After what seems like an eternity, at least to me, I proudly present the first beta of the ROBOTC Driver Suite V3.0.  The reason it’s beta is because I have not had a chance to test all of the drivers.  I will continue to test more as […]
