Need a book on simple, effective robotics? This is the one! Written by Solarbotics' founder Dave Hrynkiw with contributions by Mark Tilden


Description [Hide]

Looking for a book to get you into the nitty-gritty of building robots? Here's what you need!

Based on BEAM technology, you won't need programming skills or equipment - all the projects use simple, robust electronic circuits. Far from being wordy & academic, the theory is covered in a humorous way, or can be totally ignored in favour of just "let's get to building this thing!".

Written by Solarbotics' founder Dave Hrynkiw and BEAM Guru Mark Tilden, it includes:

  •     Preface by Mark Tilden
  •     Ch. 1 Welcome to the World of Simple Robotics!
  •     Ch. 2 BEAM Safety: Read This Before Building a Robot
  •     Ch. 3 Identifying Electronic Bits
  •     Ch. 4 Electronics Assembly Techniques
  •     Ch. 5 Tools and Mechanical Assembly Techniques
  •     Ch. 6 Dumpster Diving 101: How to Scavenge Robot Parts
  •     Ch. 7 Project 1: The Symet: An Introduction to Solar-Powered Robotics
  •     Ch. 8 Project 2: The Solaroller: BEAM-Style Drag Racing
  •     Ch. 9 Project 3: The Herbie Photovore
  •     Ch. 10 Project 4: The Bicore Headbot
  •     Ch. 11 Project 4: The BEAM Magbot Pendulum
  •     Ch. 12 Project 5: The BEAM Mini-Sumo Wrestling Edgebot
  •     Ch. 13 Project 7: The Basic 2-Motor Walker
  •     Ch. 14 Project 8: An Advanced BEAM Project: Building Intelligent Motor Drivers (The ABc Bicore by Mark Tilden)
  •     App. A Resources for More BEAM Information
  •     App. B Materials and Techniques of BEAM Robotics
  •     App. C Technical Schematics
