Robot Perception: Object Detection with the Arduino

  • Harold Timmis


Automation allows your robot to think for itself. In this chapter, we will be discussing a few new pieces of hardware that will make automating our robot simple and affective. We will be using a Ping))) ultrasonic sensor from Parallax and a servo to make an automated robot. First, we will learn more details about the hardware we will use in this chapter. Then we will take a look at the Servo Library (thank you, Arduino team). We will then do a few basic projects that will make you more confident using these new pieces of hardware: digital ruler, object alarm, and solar control. Finally, we will be creating a new robot that will think for itself.
