9780071413589: 123 Robotics Experiments for the Evil Genius (TAB Robotics)

The purpose of "Evil Genius" is to create an entertaining book made up of a series of projects that will explain electronics from static electricity (rubbing a balloon) to developing robots. The book will include the tools necessary for the reader to create the projects in the book at very little cost or inconvenience. The book will be divided into 19 sections, each one with two or more projects.The introduction to each section will take up two pages, as well as the "For Consideration" at the end. The section introduction and "For Consideration" will explain the history, theory, and parts in the section. Each project will use material readily available at "Radio Shack", "Wal-Mart", "Home Depot" and "Toys 'R Us". In some cases, the reader will have to go to Digi-Key or Jameco. It will also focus on using prebuilt components where ever possible along with using common chips instead of building circuits out of discrete components. The major sections are: start here; basic electronics; semiconductors; applied electronics; digital electronics; the PICmicro microcontroller and "C" programming language; games and applications; robot muscles; robot sensors; robot structures; and, sample robot applications.

* Shows how you can create simple robots and models using materials found around the house and workroom
* Requires only inexpensive, easily obtained parts and tools
* Provides a PCB (printed circuit board) that will make it easy to create the circuits used in this book as well as your own experiments
* Gives you directions for building a maze-solving robot, two different designs for a light-seeking robot, an artificial intelligence program that will respond to you, and much more
* Explains underlying principles and suggests other applications
* Supplies parts lists and program listings
