Sensor detection using PC API

Postby BCBGleJOS » Mon Feb 15, 2010 9:02 am

Hi all,

We want to make an API to create graphical components for each motors and sensors.
We wanted to ask if it was possible to detect the type of a sensor plugged in a specific port using PC API?

Thank you.

In general no it is not possible to detect the type of sensor attached to a sensor port. You may want to see this thread which covers similar issues (though not for leJOS the issues are pretty much the same):
Note that some of the techniques described in the above will probably need code on the NXT...
