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.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

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 ... Read full review
Thanks.I am a new robot engineer and graduated from university recently! Usually, I will meet some problems on development and then share them with friends.
