Arduino Robotics by John-David WarrenThis book will show you how to use your Arduino to control a variety of different robots, while providing step-by-step instructions on the entire robot building process. Youll learn Arduino basics as well as the characteristics of different types of motors used in robotics. You also discover controller methods and failsafe methods, and learn how to apply them to your project. The book starts with basic robots and moves into more complex projects, including a GPS-enabled robot, a robotic lawn mower, a fighting bot, and even a DIY Segway-clone.
Introduction to the Arduino and other components needed for robotics Learn how to build motor controllers Build bots from simple line-following and bump-sensor bots to more complex robots that can mow your lawn, do battle, or even take you for a ride Please note: the print version of this title is black & white; the eBook is full color.
ESP8266 and Arduino Robotics: Motor Control - WHEEL-E Robot
Arduino Robotics by John-David Warren, Josh Adams and Harald Molle (2011, Paperback, New Edition)
This book will show you how to use your Arduino to control a variety of different robots, while providing step-by-step instructions on the entire robot building process. You'll learn Arduino basics as well as the characteristics of different types of motors used in robotics. You also discover controller methods and failsafe methods, and learn how to apply them to your project. The book starts with basic robots and moves into more complex projects, including a GPS-enabled robot, a robotic lawn mower, a fighting bot, and even a DIY Segway-clone. A good book if you are looking to expand your knowledge of the arduino into controlling relatively autonomous devices. Although the back cover says you'll be OK with this if you're only a tinkerer

JD is an electronics hobbyist, builder, and relentless tinkerer. As a child, he took apart everything he owned to figure out how it worked. Since then he has built many different projects ranging from anelectric fishing pole to a remote-controlled lawn mower, which was featured on the cover of MAKE magazine in April Having worked as a builder doing carpentry, plumbing, and electrical work for 8 years, his knowledge is founded in real world experience rather than textbook recitation. In addition to building robots and remote controlled toys, he enjoys automating everyday tasks, blinking LEDs, designing and etching PCBs, and lots of random things in between. Much of his time has been spent researching, building, and testing various motor-controllers to make his bots move.
Several of the projects in this book use motors intended to carry a person. These motors are strong enough to do physical harm to people if the robot were to get out of control. For this reason, I suggest that you keep people and pets at least 20 feet away from your moving bots unless thoroughly tested , for their own safety. Summary To recap this chapter, we first discussed the basics of electricity including an electrical flow analogy, electrical properties, circuits, and types of connections. After talking about electricity, we moved into electronics and discussed semi-conductors, data sheets, integrated circuits, and IC packages. Then a small introduction to the Arduino micro-controller including the Arduino IDE, two main Arduino variants Standard and Mega , the components of a sketch, and finally the different types of common signals available on the Arduino. With a brief discussion about electronics circuit design and some of the different types of schematic symbols used for various electronic components, we went over the basic tools you need for the projects in this book and the materials that are used.
