Download Beginning Robotics With Raspberry Pi And Arduino books, Learn how to use a Raspberry Pi in conjunction with an Arduino to build a basic robot with advanced capabilities. Getting started in robotics does not have to be difficult. This book is an insightful and rewarding introduction to robotics and a catalyst for further directed study. You'll be led step by step through the process of building a robot that uses the power of a Linux based computer paired with the simplicity of Arduino. You’ll learn why the Raspberry Pi is a great choice for a robotics platform; its strengths as well as its shortcomings; how to overcome these limitations by implementing an Arduino; and the basics of the Python programming language as well as some of the more powerful features. With the Raspberry Pi you can give your project the power of a Linux computer, while Arduino makes interacting with sensors and motors very easy. These two boards are complimentary in their functions; where one falters the other performs admirably. The book also includes references to other great works to help further your growth in the exciting, and now accessible, field of smart robotics. As a bonus, the final chapter of the book demonstrates the real power of the Raspberry Pi by implementing a basic vision system. Using OpenCV and a standard USB web cam, you will build a robot that can chase a ball. What You'll Learn Install Raspbian, the operating system that drives the Raspberry Pi Drive motors through an I2C motor controller Read data through sensors attached to an Arduino Who This Book Is For Hobbyists and students looking for a rapid start in robotics. It assumes no technical background. Readers are guided to pursue the areas that interest them in more detail as they learn.

by Michele Moro, Educational Robotics In The Context Of The Maker Movement Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Educational Robotics In The Context Of The Maker Movement books, This book gathers papers presented at the International Conference “Educational Robotics in the Maker Era – EDUROBOTICS 2018”, held in Rome, Italy, on October 11, 2018. The respective chapters explore the connection between the Maker Movement on the one hand, and Educational Robotics, which mainly revolves around the constructivist and constructionist pedagogy, on the other. They cover a broad range of topics relevant for teacher education and for designing activities for children and youth, with an emphasis on using modern low-cost technologies (including block-based programming environments, Do-It-Yourself electronics, 3D printed artifacts, intelligent distributed systems, IoT technology and gamification) in formal and informal education settings. The twenty contributions collected here will introduce researchers and practitioners to the latest advances in educational robotics, with a focus on science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) education. Teachers and educators at all levels will find valuable insights and inspirations into how educational robotics can promote technological interest and 21st century skills – e.g. creativity, critical thinking, teamwork, and problem-solving – with a special emphasis on new making technologies.
