This book provides everything you need to build a working robot base - from the author of "Robot Builder's Bonanza". Here is the first title in the innovative new "Robot DNA" series from McGraw-Hill, the premier publisher of references for the robotics hobbyist. Author Gordon McComb focuses on the basic concepts and specific applications you need to build efficient robot bases - and have a great time in the process. In the clear, easy-to-follow style that has made him a favourite among robotics fans, Gordon tells you how to get things up and running using only inexpensive, easily-obtained parts and simple testing equipment. Detailed enough to get the job done, but written with the amateur hobbyist in mind, "Constructing Robot Bases" is your first point of reference when designing and building this essential subsystem. It offers all the data you need to build your own robot base: Mechanical Construction; Electrical Construction; Operating Power; Robot Designs; Constructing a Two-Wheeled Rover Robot; Selecting the right materials; Glossary of Terms; Tables, Formulas, and Constants; and Resources (books, web pages, list servers, clubs, suppliers, etc.)
