In this book, new results or developments from different research backgrounds and application fields are put together to provide a wide and useful viewpoint on these headed research problems mentioned above, focused on the motion planning problem of mobile ro-bots.
This is a project book on building small robots. Each robot utilizes the PICmicro
series of microcontrollers from Microchip Technologies Inc. for intelligence, navigation,
motor control, and sensory readings. By changing the microcontroller
programming and sensory electronics we can create a zoo of robots that includes
(neural) robots, hexapod and bipedal walkers, and
artificial vision systems that can track and follow objects.
Each robot project has something to teach....
This operation manual and the labels on the products are indicated with the symbols below for proper use and to avoid injuries or property damage. Read this manual and the related documents thoroughly before installation, operation, maintenance and inspection.
In this talk, I will address the problem of grounding linguistic analysis in control applications, such as game playing and robot navigation. We assume access to natural language documents that describe the desired behavior of a control algorithm (e.g., game strategy guides). Our goal is to demonstrate that knowledge automatically extracted from such documents can dramatically improve performance of the target application. First, I will present a reinforcement learning algorithm for learning to map natural language instructions to executable actions. ...
The robotic projects outlined in this book make extensive use of the PIC series
of microcontroller from Microchip T echnology Inc. In addition to its ability to
run programs, the microcontroller has input and output lines (pins) that are
used to control motor drive systems, read sensors, and communicate. W e
demand a lot from our microcontroller(s), so it’s important to have a good idea
of what a microcontroller is right from the start.
For the project, the PM should submit a Progress, Problems, and Plans (PPP) weekly report for several reasons. First, it’s a good record of your project. Second, you should at least have advisors who can look over the report and make suggestions. Last of all, it will light a fire under you since it’s embarrassing to file an empty report even if you’re the only person who reads it. You should observe a basic rule: Confess early and confess often. It’s much better to air problems early than to keep them secret and let them fester. They almost never get...
CHAPTER 7. IC MANUAL
Sensors are expected to be active low, meaning that they are valued at zero volts in the active, or true, state. Thus the library function returns the inverse of the actual reading from the digital hardware: if the reading is zero volts or logic zero, the digital() function will return true. If the digital() function is applied to port that is implemented in hardware as an analog input, the result is true if the analog measurement is less than 127, and false if the reading is greater than or equal to 127. Ports are numbered as marked...

Read the passage and choose the best answer.
Champagne, the king of wines and wine of kings, tastes all the
better when it is drunk from an elegant, fine-quality glass. That,
however, is only one of thousands of ways glass is used today.
And for all those different uses, many different types of glass are
produced. Glass products are manufactured in different ways.
Today, glass is blown by hand in the traditional way which the
Roman first developed, but now this work is done by robots, too.
Assistive technologies aim to enhance the daily life of people with disabilities,
improving aspects such as mobility, communication, social interaction, manipulation
of several objects and devices, etc. The main importance of assistive technology is
based on the idea of making reachable what is not accessible for many people with
Among the metal-persons of Phobos, robot B-12 held a special niche. He might not have been stronger, larger, faster than some … but he could be devious … and more important, he was that junkyard planetoid’s only moonshiner. I AM B-12, a metal person. If you read Day and the other progressive journals you will know that in some quarters of the galaxy there is considerable prejudice directed against us. It is ever so with minority races, and I do not complain. I merely make this statement so that you will understand about the alarm clock. An alarm clock...
