Build Your Own All Terrain Robot

Author: Brad Graham
Publisher: McGraw Hill Professional
ISBN: 0071446273
Release Date: 2004-05-06
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Remotely operated robots are becoming increasingly popular because they allow the operators to explore areas that may not normally be easily accessible. The use of video-controlled technology has sparked a growing public interest not just in hobbyists, but also in the areas of research, space, archeology, deep-sea exploration, and even the military. Significant changes in the technology marketplace have made the creation of an all-terrain, video controlled robot accessible to even the amateur robotic hobbyist. There are many robotics project books currently on the market, but most are targeted to hobbyists, and are strictly for indoor use. This book has the ideal mix of “brains and brawn,” making it appealing to hobbyists and interested professionals alike.
