BUILD THE BADDEST BUG IN TOWN!

IT WALKS ON SIX LEGS, POSSESSES ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, UTILIZES STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGY, AND IS INCREDIBLY INEXPENSIVE TO BUILD!

This complete project book delivers all the step-by-step plans you need to construct your own six-legged insect-like robot that walks and actually responds to its environment. Using inexpensive off-the-shelf parts hobbyists can “build a better bug” and at the same time have loads of fun honing their knowledge of mechanical construction, programming, microcontroller use, and artificial intelligence.

Written by an award-winning robotics expert, Insectronics:

* Fully explains PIC programming, use of sensors, and robot intelligence

* Details tools and materials

* Covers obstacle avoidance, sonar room mapping, finding the best route, and maze solving

* Features an informative chapter on software that covers coordinating the servo motors for walking, monitoring infrared and sonar sensors, and controlling the output of sound and light emitting diodes

* Includes a comprehensive chapter on robotic grippers

* Explains how to implement radio remote control to operate the robot up to 1 mile away

* Shows you how to give your robot unique personalized features

* Tells you how to get it all done on a shoestring budget

If you want to the follow the lead of robotics experts who are looking to insects for structural inspiration – and have hours of amusement – Insectronics belongs in your home workshop.

Synopsis:

A step-by-step guide to building a robot with walking ability and artificial intelligence. It discusses mechanical construction, electronics, PIC programming, use of sensors and robot intelligence routines. There is a chapter on software and a section on how the robot could be developed further.
