The Definitive Guide to Building Java Robots is for educators, students, hobbyists, and startups looking for Java/hardware interaction. This book shows you how to use your PC to build robots, and how you can interface with a microcontroller to do the basics.
Squeak: Learn Programming with Robots will teach you core programming concepts based on simple, visual problems that involve manipulation of robots, or "turtles." You will learn basic programming concepts like loops, abstractions, composition, and conditionals.
Sensor Technologies: Healthcare, Wellness and Environmental Applications explores the key aspects of sensor technologies, covering wired, wireless, and discrete sensors for the specific application domains of healthcare, wellness, and environmental sensing. It discusses the social, regulatory, and design considerations specific to these domains.
Learning robotics by yourself isn't easy, but it helps when the encouragement comes from an expert who's spent years in the field. Not only does veteran author David Cook assist you in understanding the component parts of robot development, but he also presents valuable techniques that prepare you to make new discoveries on your own.
Robot Building for Beginners is an update of David Cook's best-selling Robot Building for Beginners. This book continues its aim at teenagers and adults who have an avid interest in science and dream of building household explorers. No formal engineering education is assumed.
In the coming decade, billions of simple devices must be connected to the emerging Internet of Things. Todays networking protocols are too expensive and inefficient for this task. This book describes a simpler and scalable architecture that will be used to create big data from billions of small data points in the Internet of Things.
