Learning Robotics by Yourself Isn't Easy. It helps when encouragement comes from someone who's been there. Not only does Robot Building for Beginners assist you in understanding the component parts of robot development, but it also prepares you with techniques to learn new discoveries on your own. Author David Cook begins with the anatomy of a homemade robot and gives you the best advice on how to proceed successfully. General sources for tools and parts are provided in a consolidated list, and specific parts are recommended throughout the book. Also, you'll learn basic safety precautions and essential numbering and measuring systems.
An in-depth analysis of digital multimeters gives you all the information you need to select and obtain this valuable tool for yourself. Other tools and parts covered include motors, wheels, resistors, wire strippers, needlenose pliers, tap and die, alligator clips, LEDs, solderless breadboards, soldering irons, heat-shrink tubing, photoresistors, transistors, chips, gears, nut drivers, screws, cut-off wheels, connectors, and batteries. Robot Building for Beginners is an inspiring book that provides basic, practical knowledge on getting started in amateur robotics.
