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 Microchips 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!
