nxtstreetview Lego Street View Car

Mark Crosbie’s Street View Car is packed with goodies, including a NXT brick, a dGPS sensor from Dexter Indistries, a NXTBee module, some cheap “spy cams” for imaging, and Mindstorms and Power Functions motors to run the thing.

It all started when was playing with the dGPS sensor from Dexter Industries, and realised that if I combined this sensor, with a robust chassis and a camera then I’d have a LEGO version of the famous Google Street View car. And what if I could then upload the pictures into Google Earth….It all seemed so easy… How wrong I was!
