Building a robot using Windows Mobile and Lego Mindstorms NXT

This past weekend I decided to build a robot using my son’s Legos Mindstorms NXT, a Windows Mobile Smartphone, A Pharos GPS, and some code from Wimo.

The robot basically works like this; the Legos hardware provides the structure, motors, and some sensors; the Windows Mobile Smartphone is the brain; and the Pharos GPS tells the Smartphone where it is.

For now, I have a basic application on the Smartphone to control the robot, but I’m planning on changing this to a WCF service hosted on the Smartphone to allow for other applications to interface with the robot.

Here’s some pictures:
