Call for Papers, Jeff Owrey joins bNXT

Jeff has agreed to publish his papers on bNXT. In the menu above this page, you'll find the first papers, in the section "Learn NXT".

Papers are a great way to exchange research, and to publish work. Papers provide more in-depth information than blog articles. They also refer to prior work whenever possible. Papers are well known in the academic world, and we want to invite everyone in the academic community who does research using NXT, to (re)publish their papers here.

However, every good paper will be allowed. No academic degrees are required, only the quality of the paper matters.

By publishing these papers on bNXT, I hope they'll be easier to discover, and easier to keep them available for the future.

You are hereby formally invited to submit papers!

UPDATE: Both students and teachers are encouraged to submit papers.

Hi, i have one off topic question if i may.

Is it possible to measure force and torque with NXT motors? If yes, how and how accurate?

see Philo's page at

Thank you, but i don't find information how (and how acurate) he measured torque and current of a motor.

Is NXT brick itself providing these data in real time?

Actually, the motor does not provide a direct measure of torque or force; Philo used a set-up where he controls the force exerted on the motor, and monitors the current, all independant of the NXT. You *could* use something like the curve of torque vs. rotation speed (rotation speed being something that the motor does return to the NXT), but even here there's a lot of uncertainty - note that the correlation depends on the voltage, which will vary with battery level as well as how the NXT-G block is set to drive it.

Message for Jeff "the Mongoose" Owrey.

I am back in Seattle for a short time only, and I have a bowl (twice the size of the one you loaned) me to give back to you.

Come and get it before I head overseas in a few months!
