Summary

I, Robot Programmer is the only robotics programming tutorial that teaches the basics of robotics programming in any language, shows how to apply those concepts with the hugely popular LEGO Mindstorms NXT-G language, and then walks you through a pair of start-to-finish robot projects – covering both programming and construction. Absolutely no robotics or programming experience is necessary. What’s more, even if you someday choose a different robot programming language, you won’t be a beginner anymore: you’ll be able to use all the concepts you learn here. Coverage includes:

  • Building a robotic armored car with dual-firing cannons
  • Building an Army HEMTT (Heavy Expanded Mobility) roboto
  • Writing programs that make your robots speak and display visuals
  • Making your robots move – and making them decide
  • Using repetition, reusable functions, and data blocks
  • Extending your robot’s capabilities via sensors
  • Giving your robot “purpose”
  • Debugging your NXT-G programs so they work exactly as intended

 Chapter exercises and sample projects reinforce what you’ve learned, helping you test your skills and improvise additional capabilities – and also making this book an exceptionally valuable classroom and laboratory resource.
