Put the brain into your bot! Don Wilcher's Arduino Robotic Motor Controllers shows the way to building programmable logic controllers (PLCs) for robotic control of off-the-shelf toys and kits, as well as of robots you build yourself from the ground up. Arduino Robotic Motor Controllers walks you through building your own PLC using Arduino. You'll learn to connect your PLC to various sensors, and program it to control the various types of motors -- DC, servor, and sensor -- used in robotics. At the end of the book you'll be confident in builting your own robotic devices capable of independent operation within the parameters of your programming. Explains PLCs and how to build them using Arduion Covers the controlling of stepper motors and servos Helps you collect and interpret sensor data PLCs are small computing devices for controlling servo and stepper motors, collecting and reacting to sensor data, and for controlling devices such as LEDs and buzzers and anything else of that nature. PLCs have been used for decades in industry whenever there's been a need to control machines and circuits that must respond to changing conditions. The abiltiy to collect and interpret sensor data, and to translate that interpretation into new activity defines the PLC, and is precisely what is needed in the field of robotics. What you’ll learn Build and control a variety of small motors Collect and interpret sensor data Translate sensor data into motor control Bring robotic life to off-the-shelf kits Provide control over robots you build yourself Build devices that function independently in the physical world Who this book is for Arduino Robotic Motor Controllers is aimed at electronics hobbyists and new Arduino and robotics enthusiasts. It is especially appropriate for Arduino enthusiasts wanting to build devices that bridge the world of thought to the physcial world around us by creating devices capable of collecting and interpreting sensor input, and reacting in the real world.

Making Simple Robots is based on one idea: Anybody can build a robot! That includes kids, school teachers, parents, and non-engineers. If you can knit, sew, or fold a flat piece of paper into a box, you can build a no-tech robotic part. If you can use a hot glue gun, you can learn to solder basic electronics into a low-tech robot that reacts to its environment. And if you can figure out how to use the apps on your smart phone, you can learn enough programming to communicate with a simple robot. Written in language that non-engineers can understand, Making Simple Robots helps beginners move beyond basic craft skills and materials to the latest products and tools being used by artists and inventors. Find out how to animate folded paper origami, design a versatile robot wheel-leg for 3D printing, or program a rag doll to blink its cyborg eye. Each project includes step-by-step directions as well as clear diagrams and photographs. And every chapter offers suggestions for modifying and expanding the projects, so that you can return to the projects again and again as your skill set grows.
