Practical and Experimental Robotics – Ferat Sahin, Pushkin Kachroo – 1st Edition

Description

Adopting a completely practical approach; using cheap and easily available robotics kits; practical and experimental robotics provides a specific of the construction; theory and experiments for different types of robots. With topics ranging from basic seal microcontrollers to robots bipeds and propeller experiments; the text contains laboratory experiments; examples with and case studies.
The authors begin with a review of the essential elements of electronics and mechanics. Describe the basic mechanical construction and electrical control of the robot; then give at least one example of how to operate the robot using microcontrollers or software. The book includes a reference chapter on basic stamp Microcontollers with sample code pieces and a chapter completely dedicated to the PC interface. Each chapter begins with the basics; then moves on to advanced topics; thus building a basis for from scratch.

Building a bridge between technicians who have practical experience and with a deeper insight into the operation; the book covers a range of machines; from arm; wheel and leg robots to flying and underwater robots and robotic ships. “Unlike most books in this field; it offers a complete set of electronic; mechanical and computer interface and programming topics; which makes it an independent source for the knowledge and understanding of robotics.
