Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Like other additions to Tab Book's Robot DNA Series, Constructing Robot Bases serves advanced beginners, the most neglected consumers of amateur robotics books. And, like the other books in the series, its structure focuses on applications rather than specific technologies. Clearly written and well-organized, the book includes full chapters on constructing a two-wheeled robot and a six-legged robot.
