%X JCSPre is a highly reduced version of the JCSP
   (Communicating Sequential Processes for Java) parallel
   programming environment. JCSPre has been implemented on a
   LEGO Mindstorms NXT brick using the LeJOS Java runtime
   environment. The LeJOS environment provides an abstraction
   for the NXT Robot in terms of Sensors, Sensor Ports and
   Motors, amongst others. In the implementation described
   these abstractions have been converted into the equivalent
   active component that is much easier to incorporate into a
   parallel robot controller. Their use in a simple line
   following robot is described, thereby demonstrating the ease
   with which robot controllers can be built using parallel
   programming principles. As a further demonstration we show
   how the line following robot controls a slave robot by means
   of Bluetooth communications.
