Remote-Control Battlebot Contest

Students designed a remote-control Battlebot using two NXT bricks.  One was the remote-control, the other drove the Battlebot.  Commands from the remote-control (master) brick were sent to the Battlebot (slave) using bluetooth.

Here are a few movies of the contest!

Dual-Brick Bluetooth Battlebot Contest

The students created a battlebot using two NXT bricks with AI controlling the bot.  The bricks communicated using Bluetooth.  One brick was the master with all sensors connected to it.  The 2nd brick was the slave.  The master made all decisions and sent a command to the slave brick.  Motor control was split between the two bricks.
