Robotics at Home with Raspberry Pi Pico (Packt)
Friday, 31 March 2023

This book starts from the first steps in planning, building, and programming a robot with Raspberry Pi Pico. After a quick tour of Pico, Danny Staple begins with designing a robot chassis in 3D CAD, providing easy-to-follow instructions, shopping lists, and plans. Later chapters add simple sensors and outputs to extend the robot, reinforce design skills, and techniques for programming with CircuitPython. The book also covers interactions with electronics, standard robotics algorithms, and the discipline and process for building robots.
