Written by one of the founders of the famous MIT \"6270\" Lego Robotic design Competition, \"Robotic Explorations: A Hands-On Introduction to Engineering\" engages students in hands-on robot building, emphasizing technological systems of all kinds--electrical, mechanical, and computational. A first text for students as well as reference for practitioners, the book provides all the practical information needed to create an introductory freshman-level laboratory class. This versatile and pioneering book sparks the imagination and leads the reader into many thought-provoking and challenging engineering situations.
\"Robotic Explorations includes: \"
This hands-on, introductory book is based on widely available, custom robotics materials (Handy Board, Interactive C, LEGO Technic). Covers sensors; motors, gears, and mechanism; control; handy board design; construction techniques; DC Motor; and more. Ideal as an introduction to electrical engineering or capstone design. Also appropriate for readers interested in electrical technology robotics.
