Editorial Reviews

Jones, one of the inventors of the first widely adopted consumer robot,introduces the history and theory behind behavior-based programming, teaches skills needed for programming a robot, and provides readers with a virtual robot on a web site to test programming expertise. Usingan intuitive method, he deconstructs robot control into simple behaviors that are easy to program and debug for inexpensive microcontrollers with little memory. No background is required in programming or robotics.
