Gordon McComb keeps churning out useful books, this time adapting his Robot Bonanza to use the Arduino.


Description [Hide]

Gordon McComb's books have been nurturing the robotics hobby for a very long while, and we're happy to say that he's keeping them up-to-date with new technology. This is such a book - interesting robotics projects using the Arduino platform.

It contains a nice introduction to Arduino and how to use it. It then dives into building a "Teachbot" platform for the basics, then progresses onto more advanced designs.

The content is updated, with good diagrams, but the book could benefit from a color edition. That said, Gordon's book offers excellent content, well worth the minor inconvenience of greyscale images.

Coverage includes:

  • Ins and Outs of the Arduino Microcontroller
  • Arduino as a Robot Brain
  • Connecting Things to the Arduino
  • Enhancing Your Robot with Sensors
  • Expanding the Arduino
  • Layout and Design
  • The TestBot Test Platform
  • Mini Kissing Bug
  • Animatronic Parrot
  • Your Robot Avatar
  • Slithering Snake
  • 18-Servo WalkerBot
  • PC-based Autonomous Robot
  • Crash Course in Electronics
  • Learning the Arduino Programming Language
  • Setting Up Your Robotics Laboratory
