Book review of Raspberry Pi Robotic Projects by Packt Publishing

I bought one more text book to learn of Raspberry Pi and this is quick review of the book.

Raspberry Pi Robotic Projects

Raspberry Pi Robotic ProjectsRaspberry Pi Robotic Projects by Richard Grimmett

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I've had almost no experience in building robotics development before reading Raspberry Pi Robotic Projects because I was thinking that it costs a lot to pay for a computer or server, hardware components, and text book. However, I found it wrong after buying Raspberry Pi and this book.

I am totally new with robotoics development, but I did enjoy reading this book because I found that I can learn how to develop it quickly by following several small projects with Raspberry Pi, open source software, and some hardware stuff which I should by on Amazon.

There are some who feel it too easy and light for each projects, but I believe that this book is also fun to just read to learn about how hardware components work with programming by paying just $14 (kindle edition).

Lastly, this is quick review of each chapter.

Chapter 1: Getting Started with Raspberry Pi
I love the pictures of Raspberry Pi, hardware components and the explanation for each component.
Installation guide is also nice with several picutres for beginners.

Chapter 2: Programming Raspberry Pi
If you are not new with programming, you can skip this chapter.

Practical robotics development begins the chapters below.
What I love most is the pictures of the hardware components such as a USB camera, wheels, a speaker, and completed version because it helps us understand how it works and is build at last.

Chapter 4: Adding Vision to Raspberry Pi
Chapter 5: Creating Mobile Robots on Wheels
Chapter 6: Making the Unit Very Mobile Controlling the Movement of a Robot with Legs
Chapter 7: Avoiding Obstacles Using Sensors
Chapter 8: Going Truly Mobile The Remote Control of Your Robot
Chapter 9: Using a GPS Receiver to Locate Your Robot
Chapter 10: System Dynamics
Chapter 11: By Land, Sea, and Air

Next, I need to purchase hardware components to achieve some of the robotics deployment in the book..
