Get the most out of Raspberry Pi to build enthralling robotics projects
This book starts with the essentials of turning on the basic hardware. It provides the capability to interpret your commands and have your robot initiate actions. In this second edition, you will learn more specifics on how to use the Raspberry Pis GPIO pins to communicate with and control a wide range of additional hardware.
Teaching you to use the Raspberry Pi from scratch, this book will discuss a wide range of capabilities that can be achieved with it. These capabilities include voice recognition, human-like speech simulation, computer vision, motor control, GPS location, and wireless control. You will then learn how to combine these capabilities to create your own robotics projects. By the end of the book, you will be able to employ the Raspberry Pi to build some intricate and enthralling robotics projects with ease.
