Making sense of sensors -- Selecting a sensor -- Attaching your sensors -- Commanding your robot -- Where do we go from here?
Robots don t have senses, but they do have sensors that enable them to interact with their environment. This book describes the many kinds of sensors, how they work, and how to use them to get your robot to do what you want. There is also an example of the way sensors are used to get machines to perform complex tasks. Diagrams, Full-Color Photographs, Further Information Section, Glossary, Index, Infographics, Sidebars.
