Compass Sensor Review

/ 30 December 2006

For Christmas I got a Compass Sensor for my NXT, and here’s a quick little review of the sensor and it’s abilities with the NXT. First off, the sensor, though it was not made by Lego, fits well into the system down to the sizes for the actual Lego pieces to connect the sensor to my bot. It seems to be working properly in terms of the directionals (I’ve cross-checked it’s values to a analog compass). The software end of it has not yet been tested, however since my bot can’t go straight on it’s own, I doubt the first few compass RXE’s will work properly anyway. All in all, the sensor seems to be working fine.
