This book will show you how to use your Arduino to control a variety of different robots, while providing step-by-step instructions on the entire robot building process! Authored by: John-David Warren, Josh Adams, Harald Molle.


Description [Hide]

If you follow Make magazine you may remember the Lawn-bot from the cover of issue 22, well the maker of that project just became an author! J-D Warren, along with his co-authors, bring you a practical step-by-step guide on how build small-to-large scale robots (even a segway) with an Arduino microcontroller as the central decision making device, just like his famous Lawn-bot!

With this book, you'll learn Arduino basics as well as the characteristics of different types of motors used in robotics. You also discover controller methods and failsafe methods, and learn how to apply them to your project. The book starts with basic robots and moves into more complex projects, including a GPS-enabled robot, a robotic lawn mower, a fighting bot, and even a DIY Segway-clone.

Many items from the book can be found on our website, have a look around!
