Dramatic improvements in technologies and significant cost reductions in eight-bit microprocessors have spawned a renaissance in robot building. PIC Robotics, from popular electronics author John Iovine, shows amateur (and professional) electronics enthusiasts how to get in on the fun, using the power of Microchip's versatile eight-bit PIC microprocessor family to build sophisticated robots more cheaply and easily than you thought possible. John Iovine provides plans and complete parts lists for 11 easy-to-build robots each with a PICMicro "brain.” The expertly written coverage of the PIC Basic Computer makes programming a snap — and lots of fun.
With PIC Robotics, you can build robots that:
