Item description for Embedded Robotics: Mobile Robot Design and Applications with Embedded Systems by Thomas Bräunl...
This book presents a unique combination of mobile robots and embedded systems, from introductory to intermediate level. It is structured in three parts, dealing with embedded systems (hardware and software design, actuators, sensors, PID control, multitasking), mobile robot design (driving, balancing, walking, and flying robots), and mobile robot applications (mapping, robot soccer, genetic algorithms, neural networks, behavior-based systems, and simulation). The book is written as a text for courses in computer science, computer engineering, IT, electronic engineering, and mechatronics, as well as a guide for robot hobbyists and researchers.

A treasure chest of ideas Aug 27, 2006
This book is a real treasure chest of ideas for an amateur robot builder. It does not show solutions in enough detail to copy them, but it points you in the right direction.
For me some of the most interesting topics covered were: - Motorola M68332 based general purpose robot controller board, - Introduction to different robot competitions, - Simplified image processing solutions, - Walking robots and evolutionary programs to control the gait, - Examples of real life robots.
Comments to Embedded Robotics Jul 31, 2006
Hi, so far the book is a little dissapointeing, because is to much centered to a commercial hardware (EyeCon) that is somewhat hard to adquiere to a group that has a very low budget for that kind of projects... but is important to have a reference. That is why it deserve a 3. But also supply a very important source of information for sensors and actuators design. That is why i gave an average of 4 stars.
Best regards, and thanks for all the effort you made for me enjoying this book.
the best book for student Dec 25, 2003
After I have read the book contents, I think it is a great book fo me. From this book, I can get many new knowledge, including many field. I want this book to guide my student to take part in robot contest.
