Robot Remote

With this app, you’ll create an app that turns your Android phone into a remote control for a LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT robot. The app will have buttons for driving the robot forward and back- ward, turning left and right, and stopping. You’ll program it so the robot automatically stops if it detects an obstacle.

Get this app on your phone by scanning the QR code below.  If you need a QR code scanner,  download ZXing from the Android market on your phone.
