|dc.description.abstract||Performances carried on by robots nowadays are still followed by various
problems. For example, when the robots are tracking the path, very often ends up
losing path even though under normal condition or as a consequence of making turns.
Also, talking about its performance, the movements are programmed and stored in
advance, which makes it impossible for the user to change it at ease. Therefore, when
more than one robot is performing at the same time, due to different starting time or
system design, they are almost never move in accordance.
With the hope to arouse students’ interests in mechanical theories and advance
their spatial concepts, this research utilizes LEGO’s NXT Mindstorm as the research
prototype to develop our system. Our design aims at enabling the students to plan the
path and movements of the robot with our synchronizing system. An interview is
casted afterwards in the form of questionnaire to understand the students’ recognition
towards its utility, stability, their degree of interest and satisfactory concerning the
performance system is also necessary for our improvement.
We discover from our research that while operating the robots, users pay the
most attention to the utility of the system and less emphasize on stability. It is
concluded that a convenient interface is very important for users. This experiment
shows that our system effectively improves the robots’ problem in stability and the
synchronizing function which offers the students a better chance to expand their
