This is a project book and guide for anyone who wants to build and design robots that work first time.
With this book you can get up and running quickly, building fun and intriguing robots from step-by-step instructions. Through hands-on project work, Owen introduces the programming, electronics and mechanics involved in practical robot design-and-build. The use of the PIC microcontroller throughout provides a painless introduction to programming – harnessing the power of a highly popular microcontroller used by students, hobbyists and design engineers worldwide.
Ideal for first-time robot builders, advanced builders wanting to know more about programming robots, and students tackling the microcontroller-based practical work and labs.
The book’s companion website at http://books.elsevier.com/companions/9780750665568 contains: downloadable files of all the programs and subroutines; program listings for the Quester and the Gantry robots that are too long to be included in the book.
