Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Get the practical reference to programming robotic applications using the Microsoft Robotics Studio. Ideal for programmers familiar with Windows®–based development using Microsoft Visual Studio® and the Microsoft .NET Framework, this guide shows how to use the services provided in the Robotics Studio to handle navigation and remote control, speech, video, and intelligent behavior in a robotic device. It covers the Visual Programming Language included in Robotics Studio, and offers illuminating code examples in Microsoft Visual C#®.

Book News Annotation:

Designed for those interested in creating robotic applications based on the manufacturer's .NET framework, this meets the needs of those with experience in the field as well as those just starting. Independent developer and specialist author Morgan starts building a mobile, motion-detecting robot by giving the basics behind robotics and the product, then describes the concept of "service" (in terms of templates and command-line tools), Visual Programming Language, simulation, remote control and navigation, autonomous roaming, and hardware interfaces. She then turns to the complexities of building a security monitor and, for the truly ambitious, predicts the future of robotics and offers a brief, motivational view of artificial intelligence and hints on configuring software in appendices. She offers tips, screen shots and examples that suit a range of levels of ability and interest. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
