AUTHOR'S NOTE:

Like you, a "ROBOT" enthusiast, I got frustrated searching the Internet for step-by-step instructions on how to build an autonomous robot. After many late nights on the Internet I finally gave up the search. Sure, there are thousands of Web sites devoted to the subject of robots, but unfortunately, there is also a real scarcity of information on the "nuts and bolts" of building autonomous robots. After a long talk with myself, I decided to build my own robot and document my work in a book. The book,"HOW TO BUILD THE ATOM 1 ROBOT...STEP-BY-STEP", is the result of 12 months of designing,building,testing,and programming work. If you have always wanted to build a robot, but didn't know how or where to begin, this book is for you. I'll show you how (step-by-step) to build an autonomous robot that you can program to move freely about your living room according to your programming instructions and floor plans. Everything you need to build the ATOM 1 ROBOT is included within the pages of this book: Complete parts list, mechanical drawings, assembly instructions, schematics,printed circuit board layout, test instructions, and programming instructions. In addition, the ATOM 1 ROBOT was designed for future expansion so you can add your own sensors, alarms, or wireless control.
