We are using XP operating sytem and LabVIEW to power a tetrix/NXT kit and both of us are beginner programmers (still learning how to move this thing forward.) Is there some existing code temple we could learn fromand adapt to our robot, which will use ultrasonic, light, & touch to find its way through a maze?
One of the best sources of example code for all LabVIEW code, including NXT, is the NI Example Finder (LabVIEW Help menu » Find Examples...). If you browse to Toolkits and Modules » NXT Robotics, you'll find a host of examples that illustrate each component of a successful NXT Robot control system.
Also take a look at the LabVIEW LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT Module Programming Guide and the Getting Started with the LabVIEW LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT Module documents for lots of helpful information.
All the best,
