Practical Field Robotics: A Systems Approach is an introductory book in the area of field robotics. It approaches the subject with a systems design methodology, showing the reader every important decision made in the process of planning, designing, making and testing a field robot. Key features: ac Takes a practical approach to field robotics, presenting the design and implementation of a robot from start to end ac Provides multiple robot examples including those used in in nuclear service, underground coal mining and mowing ac Bridges the gap between existing mathematically based texts and the real work that goes on in research labs all over the world ac Establishes a structured approach to thinking about hardware and software design ac Includes problems and is accompanied by a website providing supporting videos and additional problemsTaken together, the batteries and motors comprise about 90% of the system total weight of 356 N. Although not ... In order of appearance in Figure 6.3, the Power Switch is a 20 A capacity DPDT, so that both the 12V and the 24V ... These are high-current connectors, unlike the screw terminals used for all of the custom circuit boards on the robot. ... Next in line on the Control Motions aanda line are four simple functions that may be invoked directly from main() or called by other functions.
