Beginning Robotics with Raspberry Pi and Arduino: Using Python and OpenCV
Learn how to use a Raspberry Pi along with an Arduino to build a basic robot with advanced capabilities. Getting started in robotics doesn’t have to be difficult.
This book is an insightful and rewarding introduction to robotics and a stimulus for further directed study.
You will be led step by step through the process of building a bot that uses the power of a Linux computer combined with the simplicity of an Arduino.
You will learn why the Raspberry Pi is a great choice for a botnet platform; its strengths and shortcomings; How to get around these limitations with the Arduino app; The basics of the Python programming language plus some of the more powerful features.
With a Raspberry Pi, you can give your project the power of a Linux computer, while the Arduino makes interacting with sensors and motors super easy.
These two areas are complementary in their functions; Where one stumbles the other performs wonderfully.
The book also includes references to other great work to help further your growth in the exciting and now accessible field of intelligent robotics.
As a bonus, the last chapter of the book demonstrates the true power of the Raspberry Pi by implementing a basic vision system. Using OpenCV and a standard USB webcam, you will build a robot that can chase the ball.
