This paper describes the benefits of using LeJOS and the Lego Mindstorms NXT set for teaching advanced software development. While Lego Mindstorms has been used in introduction to computer science courses, it is not reported to be widely used in a simulated production environment requiring such things as threading, network communications, and the implementation of command protocols. Additionally, because the Mindstorms NXT system supports Bluetooth communications with multiple devices, it is… CONTINUE READING
