Harald Molle July 14, Apress 16 Add to Wishlist This book will show you how to use your Arduino to control a variety of different robots, while providing step-by-step instructions on the entire robot building process. You also discover controller methods and failsafe methods, and learn how to apply them to your project. The book starts with basic robots and moves into more complex projects, including a GPS-enabled robot, a robotic lawn mower, a fighting bot, and even a DIY Segway-clone. As a child, he took apart everything he owned to figure out how it worked.
Since then he has built many different projects ranging from anelectric fishing pole to a remote-controlled lawn mower, which was featured on the cover of MAKE magazine in April Having worked as a builder doing carpentry, plumbing, and electrical work for 8 years, his knowledge is founded in real world experience rather than textbook recitation.
In addition to building robots and remote controlled toys, he enjoys automating everyday tasks, blinking LEDs, designing and etching PCBs, and lots of random things in between. Much of his time has been spent researching, building, and testing various motor-controllers to make his bots move. He currently lives in Birmingham, Alabama with his beautiful wife Melissa and their growing flock of animals.
Josh Adams is a developer and architect with over nine years of professional experience building production-quality software and managing projects. Harald Molle has been a computer engineer since He started his career by becoming a researcher at a university in the Southwest of Germany before cofounding an embedded systems company.
He is happily married to Jacqueline who knows that an interest in robotics requires substantial amounts of time. And he owns a cat. Read more.
