What is Datalogging?

Once basic construction techniques and programming skills have been mastered, it’s time to extend robotic designs into more complex challenges and experiments. Datalogging provides a way to not only collect data through the sensors but to graph that data for further analysis. By including a platform for these graphing skills, more time in the classroom can be spent on the critical aspect on analysis. In this section, we will discuss what is involved with datalogging and how to manipulate the software. The information located here is just a reference guide into the datalogging side of LEGO robotics and to provide a spark of ideas for taking robotic designs to the next level.
