I work on Linux and I found that there is very little around on how to use the NXT Mindstorm by LEGO with BlueTooth on Linux, so I started writing my own set of tools. I have finished a first version of a Program to interact with NXT and a group of functions to do various tasks.

It’s called nxtrc (NXT Remote Command) and the Help that tells you what it can do is this:

It wasn’t easy as BlueTooth support with linux is not well documented but with the Bluez utilities and some info I found on the net I was able to communicate with the NXT.I wrote a short intro on how to do that,it’s obsolete now but you can find it here.

Download the source of nxtrc and follow the instruction to build the program. The Readme is available as well as a text file. An HTML version of the Man page is here.

With this and the excellent NXC compiler by John Hansen I am having a lot of fun with Linux and the NXT
