NXJ WITH SENSOR MICAz

Postby cs05cc3 » Sun Aug 31, 2008 7:02 pm

Hello everyone,

I am new to NXT and NXJ. I borrowed recently from my university one NXT mindstorm and i am wondering if there is a way to make it communicate with sensors like MICAz, MICA2 or TELOSB.

Thanks in advance,
cs05cc3.

thanks esmetaman !!!

Another question that i have is if the usb interface of the brick is programmable so i can connect to the nxt brick a usb-zigbee to communicate throught zigbee with the micaz sensor.

Thanks in advance

I'm pretty sure that the USB hardware in the Atmel AT91 provides device support only, not host support. So you will not be able to drive other devices from it...

As mentioned earlier I2C may be an answer. But as I said the nxt can only be a USB device, not a USB host. A PC/Mac or whatever is a host, things like Bluetooth and Zigbee fobs are almost certainly USB devices and so can not talk to the nxt over USB....
