In Learn Robotics with Raspberry Pi, you'll learn how to build and code your own robot projects with just the Raspberry Pi microcomputer and a few easy-to-get components - no prior experience necessary!
Learn Robotics with Raspberry Pi will take you from
inexperienced maker to robot builder. You'll start off building a
two-wheeled robot powered by a Raspberry Pi minicomputer and then
program it using Python, the world's most popular programming
language. Gradually, you'll improve your robot by adding
increasingly advanced functionality until it can follow lines,
avoid obstacles, and even recognize objects of a certain size and
color using computer vision.
Learn how to:
- Control your robot remotely using only a Wii remote
- Teach your robot to use sensors to avoid obstacles
- Program your robot to follow a line autonomously
- Customize your robot with LEDs and speakers to make it light up
and play sounds
- See what your robot sees with a Pi Camera
As you work through the book, you'll learn fundamental electronics
skills like how to wire up parts, use resistors and regulators, and
determine how much power your robot needs. By the end, you'll have
learned the basics of coding in Python and know enough about
working with hardware like servers, motors, and sensors to expand
your creations beyond simple robots.
