Synopsis

Gain experience of building a next-generation collaboration robot



Key Features



Get up and running with the fundamentals of robotic programming

Program a robot using Python and the Raspberry Pi 3

Learn to build a smart robot with interactive and AI-enabled behaviors



Book DescriptionWe live in an age where the most difficult human tasks are now automated. Smart and intelligent robots, which will perform different tasks precisely and efficiently, are the requirement of the hour. A combination of Raspberry Pi and Python works perfectly when making these kinds of robots.



Learn Robotics Programming starts by introducing you to the basic structure of a robot, along with how to plan, build, and program it. As you make your way through the book, you will gradually progress to adding different outputs and sensors, learning new building skills, and writing code for interesting behaviors with sensors. You'll also be able to update your robot, and set up web, phone, and Wi-Fi connectivity in order to control it.



By the end of the book, you will have built a clever robot that can perform basic artificial intelligence (AI) operations.



What you will learn



Configure a Raspberry Pi for use in a robot

Interface motors and sensors with a Raspberry Pi

Implement code to make interesting and intelligent robot behaviors

Understand the first steps in AI behavior such as speech recognition visual processing

Control AI robots using Wi-Fi

Plan the budget for requirements of robots while choosing parts



Who this book is forLearn Robotics Programming is for programmers, developers, and enthusiasts interested in robotics and developing a fully functional robot. No major experience required just some programming knowledge would be sufficient.

Danny Staple builds robots and gadgets as a hobbyist, makes videos about his work with robots, and attends community events such as PiWars and Arduino Day. He has been a professional Python programmer, later moving into DevOps, since 2009, and a software engineer since 2000. He has worked with embedded systems, including embedded Linux systems, throughout the majority of his career. He has been a mentor at a local CoderDojo, where he taught how to code with Python. He has run Lego Robotics clubs with Mindstorms. He has also developed Bounce!, a visual programming language targeted at teaching code using the NodeMCU IoT platform. The robots he has built with his children include TankBot, SkittleBot (now the Pi Wars robot), ArmBot, and SpiderBot.
