John Lovine. Build your own working robot or android using both off-the-shelf and workshop constructed materials and devices. Computer control gives theserobots and androids two types of artificial intelligence (an expert system and a neural network). A lifelike android hand can be built and programmed to function doing repetitive tasks. A fully animatedrobot or android can also be built and programmed to perform a wide variety of functions. The contents include an Overview of State-of-the-Art Robots;Robotic Locomotion; Motors and Power Controllers; All Types of Sensors; Tilt; Bump; Road and Wall Detection; Light; Speech and Sound Recognition;Robotic Intelligence (Expert Type) Using a Single-Board Computer Programmed in BASIC; RoboticIntelligence (Neutral Type) Using Simple Neural Networks (Insect Intelligence); Making a Lifelike Android Hand; A Computer-Controlled Robotic Insect Programmed in BASIC; Telepresence Robots With Actual Arcade and Virtual Reality Applications; A Computer-Controlled Robotic Arm; Animated Robotsand Androids; Real-World Robotic Applications.
