This book, available on presents the user with instructions on how to build a robot with an Arduino microcontroller, step-by-step. It starts out slowly and builds the new roboticist's confidence.

From the book:

This is the first of a 10 part series in building and programming Arduino robots. By the time you complete all 10 modules you should have yourself a little Arduino robot running around the floor, beeping, blinking, following lines, entering sumobot contests, and more.

This is a beginner’s course. It starts with the easiest concepts and goes on to building complete robots. Please don’t just read this course please make sure you DO THE LABS. You learn by doing, so do a lot and learn a lot!

What You Will Learn in This First Module:

Arduino Module 1: Let There be (LED) Light!


1. A VERY Brief History of C
2. A VERY Brief History of the Arduino Microcontroller
3. Downloading and installing the Arduino IDE
4. Introducing the Arduino IDE
5. Lab 1: Hello World! with Blinky Lights
6. Lab 2: Run it Once – More Blinky Lights
7. Lab 3: Looping It – Even More Blinky Lights
8. Lab 4: Counting, Looping & Variables



What is a Microcontroller?

A microcontroller is a tiny computer usually on a single computer chip, usually without a screen. It often requires a full-size computer to program it. In addition to robots, microcontrollers are used in cars, TVs, remote controls, MP3 players, cell phones, and so most other electronic devices these days.

Gary Boone and Michael Cochran, engineers at Texas Instruments succeeded in creating the first microcontroller, the TMS 1000, in 1971. The result of their work was sold commercially in 1974.

Did you know that the next chapter (again it will be ONLY 99 cents) will be on the actual construction of the robot? Constructing the robot is quite easy. Actually, the only thing it takes is a small rectangle of plastic, foam board, or wood, two servo motors, a touch sensor, and an LED or two. Put those together with your Arduino, and you will have a robot. It will all be in the second installment of the Arduino book. Due to be out in the next month or so.
