Robot Adventures in Python and C (Springer)
Friday, 10 July 2020

This book concentrates on software for mobile robots, and author Thomas Bräunl demonstrates how inexpensive solutions can be constructed by mounting Raspberry Pi controllers and cameras onto model cars or other simple mechanical drive systems, with native applications for MacOS, Windows, Linux, and Raspberry Pi. Bräunl introduces EyeSim-VR, a freely available system that can realistically simulate driving, swimming, diving, and walking robots. The emphasis throughout is on algorithm development and all software assignments can run on real robot hardware, as well as on the simulation system presented.
