How to Make a Robot, 9781680454697 (1680454692), Maker Media, Inc, 2018

Learn the basics of modern robotics while building your own intelligent robot from scratch! You'll use inexpensive household materials to make the base for your robot, then add motors, power, wheels, and electronics.

But wait, it gets better: your creation is actually five robots in one! -- build your bot in stages, and add the features you want. Vary the functions to create a robot that's uniquely yours.

Mix and match features to make your own custom robot:
 

  • Flexible Motorized Base -- a playpen for all kinds of programming experiments
  • Obstacle Detector -- whiskers detect when your robot has bumped into things
  • Object Avoider -- ultrasonic sound lets your robot see what's in front of it
  • Infrared Remote Control -- command your robot from your easy chair
  • Line Follower -- use optics to navigate your bot; have races with other robot builders!

    You will learn 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. In this book you will combine multiple disciplines -- electronics, programming, and engineering -- to successfully build a multifunctional robot.

    You'll discover how to:
     
  • construct a motorized base
  • set up an Arduino to function as the brain
  • use "whisker" switches to detect physical contact
  • avoid obstacles with ultrasonic sensors
  • teach your robot to judge distances
  • use a universal remote to control your robot
  • install and program a servo motor
  • respond to input with LEDs, buzzers, and tones
  • mount line-following sensors under your robot

    And more. Everything is explained with lots and lots of full-color line drawings. No prior experience is necessary. You'll have fun while you learn a ton!

Fashion as Photograph: Viewing and Reviewing Images of Fashion
Fashion as Photograph: Viewing and Reviewing Images of Fashion
Photographic images play a key role in defining global fashion culture and in charting its discursive space. They are seen by many as the driving force behind the fashion system, with cultural pundits and industry creatives heralding the photograph as fashion’s ‘ultimate signifier’ (Saville in Burgoyne 2002: 36). Since the early...

Graphics and GUIs with MATLAB, Third Edition (Graphics & GUIs with MATLAB)

MATLAB®, now the industry-standard engineering language for computation, analysis, and visualization, continues to evolve in its capabilities. Version 6.x incorporated several major improvements, including significant enhancements to its graphics features, such as transparencies, increased 3-D visualization, and an improved rendering...

Distributed Systems Architecture: A Middleware Approach
Distributed Systems Architecture: A Middleware Approach
Middleware is the bridge that connects distributed applications across different physical locations, with different hardware platforms, network technologies, operating systems, and programming languages. This book describes middleware from two different perspectives: from the viewpoint of the systems programmer and from the viewpoint of the...

Introduction to Genetic Algorithms for Scientists and Engineers
Introduction to Genetic Algorithms for Scientists and Engineers

This invaluable book has been designed to be useful to most practising scientists and engineers, whatever their field and however rusty their mathematics and programming might be. The approach taken is largely practical, with algorithms being presented in full and working code (in Basic, Fortran, Pascal And C) included on a floppy disk to...
