Book Description McGraw-Hill Education - Europe, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 231 x 183 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Learn how to create your own lifelike robots that simulate realistic human responses! Androids: Build Your Own Lifelike Robots shows how to use Arduino and low-cost sensors and actuators to create robots with humanistic capabilities-arms that bleed when cut; legs that retract when the robot stubs its foot on a rock; heart and breath sounds that change with effort; and even a robot that shivers when it s cold. Co-written by the Editor-in-Chief of SERVO and Nuts Volts magazines and the Chief Scientist of the US ARMY TATRC Armed Forces Simulation Institute for Medicine, this book leverages the increasing performance-to-price ratio of affordable microcontroller hardware, powerful programming languages, and affordable sensors to create robots with lifelike responses to internal and external stimuli. You ll learn about cybernetic principals, such as closed feedback loops, that form the basis of human reflexes and bodily functions. This how-to guide to creating robots with physical intelligence is the first step in creating robots that can pass for living, breathing humans! A how-to project-based book, with illustrated step-by-step instructions Uses popular, affordable components, easily obtained from major parts suppliers Programming code compatible with the Arduino platform with supplemental code in C for the Parallax Propeller All code downloadable from the companion website.
