This paper describes our work to discover if LEGO Mindstorms can produce the behaviours needed for the Intelligent Sensing and Control (ISC) practical. Two robots will be built: one using straight Mindstorms and one using Technic. These two robots will be built using similar hardware and software design. The aim is to make them as identical as possible so that direct comparison can be made. Additionally, another Mindstorms robot will be built, but enhanced to use two RCXs which can communicate each other. All three robots then are to be competed each other in robot rugby game. Their performance in the game then is used to evaluate whether Mindstorms is suitable for ISC practical.
