Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
RoboBasic is an open source (free) robotics control software package that includes the robot sims you design on screen. It also includes a compiler and interpreter (why that's important in a second).

There are MANY books on using RoboBasic (RB) both here on Amazon and on the web. However, since RB is used 99% in education, modeling and sims, many folks don't know that the program is REALLY robust when it also comes to controlling "real" physical robots and components. This book is one of a few that even mention that, and the only one specifically on controlling real robots and components with RB. The very fine Arduino book-- Interfacing The Arduino with a PC Using RobotBASIC's Protocol-- is an example, but it uses the compiler in RB to get around sketches and use the Arduino with a PC, NOT robotic control!

John and Sam's little book is PACKED with everything you need to know, from a PRACTICAL standpoint, to migrate your PC Robotic sims to real sensors and motor controls. The text gives many applications examples, and the website and appendices go much deeper. For example, if you're a teacher using RoboBasic on screens, this book is a must to take the "next step" and show your students how they can use that knowledge in the real 3D world! I develop K-12 robotics texts for RRETA (the robotics assn) and this is one of my favorite little texts.

As just one example, RB was made to interface with serial and parallel ports, and as you know everything today is USB. The authors show not only how to get around that, but give specific vendor sites and even show how this can be turned into an advantage.

I purchased this book when I first read about RobotBASIC in Servo magazine . Just recently got " Arlo : The Robot you always wanted " which is a great companion book to this one .

With this book and Blankenship's new Arlo book you have the Holy Grail of build your own resources . You can either roll your own Arlo or pick and choose sub-systems to create your own thinking creation. These two books are certain to be mentioned in the future as the excellent contribution to robotics that they are . R2D2 we're working on your predecessors !!!

I used this book in combination with two others. It cleared up some questions I had. I am not sure this is a stand-alone book. But for me, it did the job.
