The Samantha module is a device that allows a team to control its robot remotely, though a wireless connection. The Samantha module is attached to the NXT using a standard USB cable. It allows a team to start and stop its robot remotely. It also lets team members drive their robot remotely. Commands from the drivers’ game controllers are sent through a wireless connection to the SAMANTHA module where they are processed by the NXT microcomputer.
