Arduino Robot Bonanza
by Gordon McComb
Great new robot book for the Arduino programming enthusiast. Packed with detailed instructions
on building a wide range of robots, including basic line following robots, more advanced sensing robots,
a robotic snakebot and a robotic arm. This book is packed with circuits, programming code and mechanical
assembly instructions to easily build and develop these robots.
Arduino Robot Bonanza first introduces the basics of Arduino programming, with instructions on loading the
software and writing your first programs. The book then moves onto interfacing and controlling various
motors and sensors for your robot. Servo motors, dc motors, distance sensors, encoders are all explained in detail.
The final part of the book covers building a number of different robots, including a teachbot, tunebot with music,
snakebot with many different segments and also a robotic arm with gripper for picking up and moving objects.
The book is ideal for those wanting to build robots quickly and easily, without having
to spend hours learning assembly and control programming. Ideal for the Arduino enthusiast to expand
your programming skills into robots and building real-world practical applications.
