Preliminary Windows software test. This video gives a short glimpse of the controller software that I will use myself, but it's focussed more on the screen that is going to be visible to the visitors at the LegoWorld 2010 (Zwolle, The Netherlands) event.

This screen so far shows the warehouse status, displaying the parts that are in the warehouse and the number in which they are available still. In the top-right corner you will see a small picture of the model being build and the display in the middle-right is showing the build progress and what the factory has completed and what the current brick being placed is (current brick being encircled in a red line).

The mission:
The entire factory will consist of a warehouse section with separate storage-bays for an assortment of in total 103 different parts (either different in colour or element-type) storing 16 elements of each type (this means that in total the warehouse will have over 1600 Lego pieces in the warehouse). Next to the warehouse there will be a robot taking care of receiving the parts from the warehouse-robot, which will receive the pieces, line them up for the building robot as well as rotating pieces if the model that is being build requires it to. The last robot is the building-robot, which will retrieve the pieces from the middle robot and then place it within the model being build.
All robots in the factory are controlled by 5 NXT programmable bricks all joined in some way by a master-slave setup, where one of the NXT's will communicate with a computer in order to receive instructions so it is able to determine the pieces to be retrieved from the warehouse and where to put them in the model being build.
