Book Summary : Robot Building for Beginners 2-Ed

Robot Building for Beginners, Second Edition is an update of David Cook’s best-selling Robot Building for Beginners. This book continues its aim at teenagers and adults who have an avid interest in science and dream of building household explorers. No formal engineering education is assumed.

The robot described and built in this book is battery powered and about the size of a lunchbox. It is autonomous. That is, it isn’t remote controlled.

You’ll begin with some tools of the trade, and then work your way through prototyping, robot bodybuilding, and eventually soldering your own circuit boards. By the book’s end, you will have a solid amateur base of understanding so that you can begin creating your own robots to vacuum your house or maybe even rule the world!

What you’ll learn

  • How to build a robot from scratch
  • Where to obtain parts and tools to get you started
  • How to build the brain—the intelligence—using the motherboard
  • How to create the body and become a Dr. Frankenstein
  • How to get your robot moving and ruling
