Anatomy of a Robot – McGraw Hill.pdf
To be clear, it is not the intention of my book to teach you how to build a robot. Others
can find the nuts and bolts better than I, but if you want to come away enriched with the
seminal knowledge of the academic and professional disciplines necessary to be successful
in the field, then this book is for you. Each major discipline is the subject of a
separate chapter. Each chapter will cover the basics but will also lead you to theory and
reasoning that can capture the imagination. For each discipline, legions of engineers
and professors spend their entire careers sweating the details.
