Build and create interactive, sensor-based robots using your LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 kit
The LEGO EV3 is a programmable LEGO brick that can control different motors and take input from buttons and numerous sensors, allowing you to build sophisticated robots from a simple children's system of modular bricks. You can build your very own robot using your EV3 kit, but there is a lack of good documentation in regards to the details of robot building!
This book is a practical guide that will show you how to advance beyond the basic lessons included in your EV3 kit, combine core programming commands, and implement tested design principles when building your own robot. You will become familiar with resources beyond your EV3 kit and enhance your robot designs.
What You Will Learn
Design a robot for optimum navigation and place sensors for optimal calibration
Control multiple robots through a master robot
Decipher the advanced programs developed by LEGO
Account for weight and balance issues in your design
Calibrate the sensors using buttons on the robot
Utilize core programming concepts such as loops, case structures, calculations, variables, and arrays
Enhance your programs with proportional and PID control
