PUT POWERFUL, LOW-COST MICROCHIPS AND NEW TECHNOLOGIES INTO HOME-BUILT ROBOTS

Dramatic improvements in technologies and significant cost reductions in 8-bit microprocessors have spawned a renaissance in robot building. PIC Robotics, from popular electronics author John Iovine, shows amateur (and professional) electronics enthusiasts how to get in on the fun, using the power of Microchip's versatile 8-bit PIC microprocessor family to build sophisticated robots more cheaply and easily than you thought possible.

With PIC Robotics, you can build robots that:

* Use a CCD camera to capture and follow a visual target

* Walk on two legs (bi-pedal walker)

* Walk on six legs (hexapodal walker)

* Obey verbal commands (speech recognition)

* Look for and track bright light sources

* And do it inexpensively!

Synopsis:

Here's everything the robotics hobbyist needs to harness the power of the PICMicro MCU. In this heavily-illustrated resource, author Iovine provides plans and complete parts lists for 11 easy-to-build robots each with a PICMicro "brain."

Synopsis:

- Projects include a bi-pedal robot that walks upright, an artificial vision robot that will track and follow various visual cues, and a functional robotic arm- Discusses Braitenberg vehicles, Grey Walter behavioral robots, and a speech recognition system.- Step-by-step directions for each project and inspiration for hundreds more
