Book Description

Here's a unique "head to toe" examination of all of the major disciplines involved in building robots and control systems - offering both practical theory and philosophy in a technical yet entertaining way.

This is a true "under the hood" look at the gamut of subjects related to robotics, from mathematics to control systems. It brings a technical topic down to a novice's level, equating mechanical pieces with human counterparts: controls=mind, power system=heart, actuators=muscles, and sensors=eyes and ears.

It offers coverage ranges from project management to nuts and bolts topics such as: sensors, actuators, power systems, and controls; It provides basic background theory of each subject, and then goes into more in-depth treatment, including math and references.
