This video presents the results of a semester project conducted by freshmen of the cybernetic engineering course of the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg, Germany during their first term 2008-2009. Basically, the students built and programmed LEGO Mindstorms NXT robots which have been controlled via bluetooth and MATLAB using the great toolbox from the RwTH Aachen. Check mindstorms.rwth-aachen.de/ for details on that toolbox.

The task of the 1st semester students was to build and program LEGO robots, which detects a wall and follows the wall along while holding a given distance. The wall was detected using the ultra sonic sensor. The red lines are only indicating the reference distance and not used for control.
