The brain or controller board is like a small computer. It is basically a microcontroller that can be connected to sensors (senses) and actuators. Department of Electrical Engineering. Electronic Systems. Sensors and Actuators. Introduction to sensors. Sander Stuijk. (@). In the following we describe the different kind of LEGO sensors and actuators that can be connected to the NXT, the connection cables needed, the internals of.

It has the capacity to interact with the environment and carry out different functions accordingly. If we compare robots to human beings, the sensors would be our senses. sensoren en actuatoren
They send information to the control system the brain and we sensoren en actuatoren our behaviour and effect our surroundings through actuators parts of the body. A robot also sensoren en actuatoren a source of power in order to function and a physical structure to sustain the elements it is made up of.
The brain or controller board is like a small computer.
It is basically a microcontroller that can be connected to sensors senses and actuators muscles, voice, etc. The ZUM board is made up of the following components: The sensors A sensor is simply an electronic component that sends a smaller or larger amount of electricity according to a sensoren en actuatoren element, such as light, sound or distance, etc.
Sensors are the method to obtain IoT data.
In fact, sensing technological innovation is developing so sensoren en actuatoren and becoming so sophisticated that we will notice a trillion new sensors deployed within a couple of years. A much better term for a sensing unit is a transducer.
These two classes of sensors are physically connected to the input ports in two different ways. Light sensor, ultrasonic sensor, touch sensor and sound sensor, Figure 2.
These are all connected to the input ports by means sensoren en actuatoren the NXT cable, a six wire cable with RJ16 connectors in both ends, Figure 3.
