CatCan Creative’s NXT SmartSensor Lite

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.

Testing the Mindstorms CruizCore Sensor MEMS

My New Mindstorms NXT CruizCore Sensor arrived today after a bit of a wait, but in time for my Birthday. The CruizCore® XG1300L is a digital Sensor containing MEMS gyroscope and accelerometer sensors. This device is compatible with the LEGO® Mindstorms NXT kit. The CruizCore® XG1300L processes the sensor signals eliminating the most of the significant errors associated with these type of inertial devices. This results in the sensor outputs from the CruizCore® XG1300L to be near-free of these errors and can be used by the NXT, without further processing in many types of applications.
