3.0 out of 5 stars Good book , but..., 19 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Arduino Robotics (Technology in Action) (Paperback)
Arduino has taken the world of amateur electronics by a storm. Before Arduino, and if you wanted to work with embedded systems, you must have an electronics degree and lots of time (and money) to spare in order to master all the data books, assembling a toolchain, and buy some sort of development system. With Arduino all that changed dramatically, and nowadays, almost everyone with the necessary will can do amazing work in the field.
If you love to tinker with robots you must purchase this book. However, this is not a beginner's book. It requires some prior knowledge in Arduino language (very similar to C) and electronics. Also, some mechanical skill is implied in order to build all the proposed projects. Some of them are quite elaborated as the Segway clone and an autonomous boat guided by GPS. The graphical side of the book is somewhat flawed and this is a shame in an otherwise good book.
