RCX and NXT compatibility question.

Postby giannisapatis » Mon Oct 22, 2007 10:47 am


I have a RCX brick and i was wondering if an ultrasonic sensor from the NXT would work with the RCX brick.

Furthermore, what version of lejos would i need to programme an ultrasonic sensor mounted on the RCX brick?

Thanks in advance for your help,

No, the Ultrasonic sensor will not work with the RCX. It uses the I2C protocol and the RCX does not support that.

Mindsensors sell an RCX-I2C module and it is possible that the Ultrasonic sensor works with that, but it may not, and I would not really recommend trying it.
