Description - Building Robot Drive Trains by Dennis Clark
The "Robot-DNA" series of books are created for the home hobbyist to learn more about basic robotics and the sciences (mechanical engineering, electrical/electronic engineering and programming) that are needed to develop them. Each book will discuss a critical but finite discipline within the robot building craft. The books will be step-progressive throughout the series (that is, their order is related to the steps normally taken in building a robot). However, readers are not required to purchase the previous books in the series to take advantage of any other book. That said, it is likely readers will each purchase several books in the series. Under consideration should be a collection of all books packaged together, and sold as a separate SKU. A unique aspect of the series is that the projects and methods described in each book are related -- electrically and/or mechanically -- with the projects and methods in other books. For example, the discussion of motor bridge circuits (Book 2) will describe specific connection plans to the microcontrollers discussed in Book 3.
This approach does not preclude offering generic assistance should the reader use a different microcontroller, but will greatly help those who prefer to follow specific steps and plans.
