Why is Lego Mindstorms so expensive?
That’s a big development cost, because LEGO has a lot of proprietary components. The EV3 comes with quite a few electronic components— the programmable brick, 2 large motors, 1 smaller motor, infrared sensor, color sensor, touch sensor, remote control, 7 wires, and a USB cable. That adds a lot to the cost.

How can I make a robot software?
There are three steps involved. First, you get motors and sensors running using off-the-shelf drivers. Then you develop basic building blocks so that you can move the robot and read its sensors. Finally, use that to develop smart, complex software routines to create your desired behavior.
