Publisher Comments:

Building robots that sense and interact with their environment used to be tricky. Now, Arduino makes it easy. With this book and an Arduino microcontroller and software creation environment, youll learn how to build and program a robot that can roam around, sense its environment, and perform a wide variety of tasks. All you to get started with the fun projects is a little programming experience and a keen interest in electronics.

Make a robot that obeys your every command—or runs on its own.

Maybe youre a teacher who wants to show students how to build devices that can move, sense, respond, and interact with the physical world. Or perhaps youre a hobbyist looking for a robot companion to make your world a little more futuristic. With Make an Arduino Controlled Robot, youll learn how to build and customize smart robots on wheels.

You will:
