This audiobook is meant to serve as a basis for learning Arduino programming. It aims at giving beginners a simple, interesting, and guided introduction to the Arduino and its programming. The book focuses on practical tasks, tipsm and tricks, with a theoretical introduction to advanced Arduino.What can I do with Arduino?As a beginner in the world of Arduino, surely you've wondered the same thing. The truth is that it is a very difficult question to answer, as there are numerous projects you can do with this microcontroller. We can give examples that will help you understand the functions and utilities of the device.Examples of projects you can easily develop after listening to this book include:Mobile robots (e.g., line follower)Home automation devices (e.g., automatic blinds)Everyday devices (e.g., alarm clock) Games (e.g., arcade game machine)A multitude of other projects; the sky is the limitThe book is divided into four chapters (with a possible continuation). Of course, it doesn't cover everything there is to know about Arduino because the subject is so extensive that you can write a dozen books about it.In this book, you will learn how to signal information via LEDs and to transmit text on display. You'll learn about Arduino's communication with your computer, how to control motors, and about sensors and their use. You’ll also receives tips along the way that will help you prevent errors.By combining the above resources, you will be able to build a device that collects environmental information (sensors), process it, act on it (motors), and communicate with the user (diodes, display, computer).Is this book right for me?If you are interested in electronics and would 1.

Robotics is one of the most exciting Technology fields in modern science. Conventional wheels are the most widely used among wheeled mobile robots WMRs with wheeled locomotion. These wheels are simple to construct, require little maintenance, provide smooth motion, offer high load-carrying capacity and they are cheap. The main contribution of this Book is to present and discuss a new approach for development of a kinematic model and control strategy for a nonholonomic wheeled mobile robot. Vision is an important aspect of robotics and can sometimes be one of the only ways to make a robot fully capable of maneuvering in any situation. This Book presents a novel computer vision methodology for building a system capable of determining the presence of a path follower, tracking the objects on that path, and recognizing the objects shape. The Book addresses three important topics in mobile robotics. These are the path follower, the multi-sensors and the steering fuzzy controllers for wheeled mobile robot.
Line Follower Robot is the integrated design from the knowledge of Mechanical, Electrical and Computer engineering. This Project enables a C coded computer program to guide vehicle movement of two rear wheels of a robot car through electrical circuits with signal generation system transformed by a parallel port. This signal is interpreted in the DC motor. Hexadecimal data based command transformed to Binary data based signal that executes the electrical relay operations to drive the robot in line!
This book focuses on the mathematical and computational aspects of integral sliding mode control and multiple robots with uncertainties. The contents are usable in a wide variety of scientific and engineering disciplines. These contents are organized into six chapters. Chapter 1 starts with a brief historical overview of the formation problems of multiple robots. Chapter 2 presents the mathematical model of the leader-follower-based formation problem for multiple robot systems in the presence of uncertainties. Chapter 3 introduces the methodology of sliding mode. Chapter 4 presents the integral sliding mode control for the formation problem. Chapter 5 extends the compensator design of uncertainties for multiple robots. Chapter 6 summarizes some of the further extensions not captured within this book. The book can be used for teaching a graduate-level special-topics course in sliding mode control and robotics.
Subject follower is one of the most important aspects of autonomous robotics. Subject following is a task which is used for detecting the objects placed in the path of your robot or any vehicle and following that Subject keeping itself at some fixed distance from the Subject. So, to protect the robot from any physical damages and following it. An Subject following robot is an intelligent robot, which can automatically sense and follow the Subject. In this project, we will learn How to design an Subject follower robot with AVR ATmega2560 microcontroller using Sharp IR Sensor. This robot is an automatic robot i.e no manual control is needed. The robot will follow an Subject keeping itself at a fixed range of distance from the Subject. Whenever the Subject stops or there is no Subject in front of the robot, the robot will stop. The above process continues till the robot finds an Subject at some fixed range of distance. Here, we will use one sharp IR sensor to detect Subject and to follow it. We place the sharp IR sensor in the front side of the robot and the sensor will be pointing towards the front of the robot.

The highlight in this book stem from a complexity of mecanum wheel design and the motion control difficulty due to the fact that there are four wheels to control three different degrees of freedom (DOF). The mecanum wheel mobile robot consists of both hardware and software development for omnidirectional motion characteristics and autonomous navigation. The scope in this book can be separated into two major parts. Part 1 is the development of mobile robot system hardware including mecanum wheel, robot chassis, motor controller and the robot controller. Part 2 concerns about the mobile robot characteristics, motion study, modelling and development of autonomous navigation using obstacle avoidance and line follower applications. A design environment was developed to rapidly generate, evaluate and refine designs for both the physical hardware embodied by robot as well as the software algorithms used for the mobile robot control. The mecanum wheels give advantages in the maneuverability and provide the extra motion for the sideways and diagonal movement. These motion paths help the mobile robot to work in limited working area and congested environment.
The book offers a unified view on classical results and recent advances in the dynamics of nonconservative systems. The theoretical fundamentals are presented systematically and include: Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formalism, non-holonomic constraints, Lyapunov stability theory, Krein theory of spectra of Hamiltonian systems and modes of negative and positive energy, anomalous Doppler effect, reversible systems, sensitivity analysis of non-self-adjoint operators, dissipation-induced instabilities, local and global instabilities. They are applied to engineering situations such as the coupled mode flutter of wings, flags and pipes, flutter in granular materials, piezoelectric mechanical metamaterials, wave dynamics of infinitely long structures, radiative damping, stability of high-speed trains, experimental realization of follower forces, soft-robot locomotion, wave energy converters, friction-induced instabilities, brake squeal, non-holonomic sailing, dynamics of moving continua, and stability of bicycles and walking robots. The book responds to a demand in the modern theory of nonconservative systems coming from the growing number of scientific and engineering disciplines including physics, fluid and solids mechanics, fluid-structure interactions, and modern multidisciplinary research areas such as biomechanics, micro- and nanomechanics, optomechanics, robotics, and material science. It is targeted at both young and experienced researchers and engineers working in fields associated with the dynamics of structures and materials. The book will help to get a comprehensive and systematic knowledge on the stability, bifurcations and dynamics of nonconservative systems and establish links between approaches and methods developed in different areas of mechanics and physics and modern applied mathematics.
