The following list includes 2 NXT books published by Syngress.
Programming LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT by Owen Bishop is a how-to guide for programming NXT robots using NXT-G and Microsoft VPL. The book features 10 projects including a maze solver, a robot house builder, an obstacle avoider, and more. Also inside are flowcharts and data flow diagrams for describing the process of developing programs, and an included DVD has the programs as well as an e-book version of the text. The programs range in complexity from path-following to generating some degree of artificial intelligence.
Building Robots with LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT by Dave Astolfo, Mario Ferrari, and Giulio Ferrari covers a wide range of building topics such as LEGO geometry, gears, motors, pneumatics, and more. The book also discusses a variety of projects such as classic robots, walking robots, animal robots, maze-solving robots, drawing and writing robots, racing robots, fighting robots, and more. Rather than focusing on building instructions, the book presents ideas and pictures of completed robots to encourage experimentation.
