I decided to put my CatCan SmartSensor Lite’s Temperature measuring capabilities to use by constructing a simple LEGO Mindstorms NXT Mechanical Linear Display Thermometer. The Thermometer is graduated in 1 Degree Celsius increments. The Display pointer is driven via a NXT Motor connected to a conveyor belt built from old style Technic Track Elements.

I received a LEGO Mindstorms NXT SmartSensor Lite Edition‘ from CATCAN Creative, a Taiwanese company dedicated to designing sophisticated sensors and servos, for hobbyists and educational use. The SmartSensor Lite Edition is a IMU (Inertial measurement unit) device on steroids. The SmartSensor Lite Edition uses the standard  I2C communication interface to connect to the LEGO Mindstorms NXT Sensor Ports. The CanTan Creative® SmartSensor Lite Edition joins the Dexter Industries® dIMU Inertial Motion Sensor and the CruizCore® XG1300L Sensor which have been released over the last 12 months.
