GlideWheel angle sensor for Lego Mindstorms NXT or EV3
Including €0.01 for ecotax
The GlideWheel angle sensor for Lego Mindstorms NXT/EV3 measures the angular position of an axis in the + hole in the middle of the sensor. The measurement rate is very high (less that 1 millisecond per measurement, when reading a sensor port with the Lego Mindstorms NXT Brick takes 16 milliseconds) and very precise (under 0.5 degrees). The GlideWheel angle sensor for Lego Mindstorms NXT has a very low friction on the measurement axis.
The angle data, directly in degrees, are accessible in an NXT-G program with the block provided by Mindsensors. It allows to read the angle data, the rotating speed and to compare the angle value to a reference value.
Usage examples with the GlideWheel angle sensor for Lego Mindstorms NXT or EV3
All technical values about the GlideWheel angle sensor for Lego Mindstorms NXT (I2C registers, consumption, programming with other languages) can be found in this documentation.
This page shows you how to use the GlideWheel angle sensor for Lego Mindstorms NXT with a wheel to measure the traveled distance and gives you the corresponding NXC code.
Also, this document offers 6 subjects for practical work sessions using the GlideWheel angle sensor for Lego Mindstorms NXT, for example using it to compute the period of a pendulum depending on its length or the speed of a bike wheel.
