Review:

Jones, one of the inventors of the first widely adopted consumer robot,introduces the history and theory behind behavior-based programming, teaches skills needed for programming a robot, and provides readers with a virtual robot on a web site to test programming expertise. Using an intuitive method, he deconstructs robot control into simple behaviors that are easy to program and debug for inexpensive microcontrollers with little memory. No background is required in programming or robotics. ( Sci-Tech Book News 2004-06-01)

From the Publisher:

  • Doesn't assume any familiarity with robotics or programming languages
  • Teaches the concepts of behavior-based programming through text, programming examples, and exercises that are fully integrated with the simulator (and later with the robot)
  • Touches on the history and theoretical underpinnings of behavior-based robots
  • Introduces the idea of "emergent behavior," and explains how to design new behaviors by manipulating old ones and adjusting programming parameters
  • Includes an advanced section that shows how readers can design their own behavior-based systems from scratch
  • "About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.

Summary: MASTER ROBOT PROGRAMMING ITH YOUR OWN FREE VIRTUAL 'BOT!This ingenious book/Web site partnership teaches the skills you need to program a robot -- and gives you a virtual robot waiting online to perform your commands and test your programming expertise. You don't need to know either robotics or programming to get started! Using an intuitive method, "Robot Programming deconstructs robot control into simple and distinct behaviors that are easy to program and debug for inexpensive microcontrollers with little memory. Once you've mastered programming your online 'bot, you can easily adapt your programs for use in physical robots. Though "Robot Programming smoothes the path to acquiring skills in this arcane art, it does not reduce it to simplistics. With this resource, you can open the door to all the complexity, sophistication, versatility, and robustness that it is possible for robot behavior to exhibit.
