More than two dozen fun and challenging projects using the next generation of LEGO® Mindstorms™ and the Java™ programming language are included in this guide. LEGO Mindstorms NXT 2.0 is an incredible updated kit for building and programming robots and this book introduces a diverse set of projects, building tips, programming code, complete 3-D rendered building instructions, and hundreds of illustrations to guide engineers and amateurs alike. With easy-to-follow instructions, a full chapter on building with the LEGO stud-less brick paradigm, and a complete tutorial on programming Java, this guide has been revised for the latest version of leJOS NXJ and provides more exciting projects that include Bluetooth, better navigation, and integration with new devices such as smart phones and game controllers. The projects include walking robots, laser sensors, beacon navigation, WiFi control, precise robotic arm control with a SCARA robot and omni-wheels.

Page 512, where the law of cosine is stated as:
c^2=a^2 + b^2 – 2*a*b*cos(A)
It should be:
c^2=a^2 + b^2 – 2*a*b*cos(C)
(the two following formula’s should also replace A with C)
