Build Your Own All-Terrain Robot US$36.00

Build Your Own All-Terrain Robot

In Build Your Own All-Terrain Robot, authors Brad Graham and Kathy McGowan present a beginner-friendly, creative, and heavily-illustrated introduction to the exciting world of robotics. Remotely operated robots are popular because they allow people to explore areas that may not physically be easily accessible. The use of video-controlled technology has sparked a growing public interest in robots not just among hobbyists, but also among those who are involved in (or just curious about) research, space, archeology, deep-sea exploration, and even military operations.

Significant changes in the technology marketplace have made the creation of an all-terrain, video-controlled robot possible for even the amateur robotics hobbyist. This book suits hobbyists as well as professionals. The authors guide even total newcomers to robots and home workshops in constructing a rugged, video-controlled, talking, seeing, interactive explorer robot with a range of over a mile--all for under $200!

Softcover, 300 pages
