|How to Make a Robot (Maker Media)|
|Friday, 18 May 2018|
This book teaches the basics of modern robotics while showing how to build your own intelligent robot from scratch. Author Gordon McComb shows how to use inexpensive household materials to make the base for your robot, then add motors, power, wheels, and electronics. The robot that is created is actually five robots in one. You build your bot in stages, and add the features you want, varying the functions to create a robot that's uniquely yours.
The book shows how switches, ultrasonics, infrared detectors, and optical sensors work. Install an Arduino microcontroller board and program your robot to avoid obstacles, provide feedback with lights and sound, and follow a tracking line. The book combines electronics, programming, and engineering to show how to successfully build a multifunctional robot.
