Overview

Create larger and more useful mobile robots! Ideal for serious hobbyists, Applied Robotics II begins by discussing PMDC motor operation and criteria for selecting drive, arm, hand and neck motors. Subsequent chapters delve into complex topics, from rolling platform design considerations to neural networks and more. Detailed instructions for building specific systems plus in-depth exploration of artificial intelligence (AI), vision and other advanced concepts are included. Instructive illustrations, schematics, part numbers and sources are also provided, making this book a "must" for advanced builders with a keen interest in moving from simple reflexes to autonomous, AI-based robots.

Edwin Wise develops CAD/CAM software during the day, and explores the edges of Mad Science at night. He has written game software for Broderbund and Dynamix and manufacturing software for Point Control and Building Blocks, but always returns to his interest in robots and simulated intelligence after-hours. He is currently building a giant pneumatic robot named Boris, and looks forward to many more years of mad projects.
