Amphibionics : Build Your Own Biologically Inspired by Karl Williams

By Karl Williams

This paintings offers the hobbyist with distinctive mechanical, digital, and PIC microcontroller wisdom had to construct and application a snake, frog, turtle, and alligator robots. It makes a speciality of the development of every robotic intimately, after which explores the area of slithering, leaping, swimming, and jogging robots, and the synthetic intelligence wanted with those systems.

Amphibionics PIC 16F84 MCU Microchip technology has developed a line of reduced instruction set computer (RISC) microprocessors called the programmable interface controller (PIC). ” Harvard uses two memories and separate busses. The first memory is used to store the program, and the other is to store data. The advantage of this design is that instructions can be fetched by the CPU at the same time that RAM is being accessed. This greatly speeds up execution time. The architecture commonly used for most computers today is known as Von Neumann architecture.

3. 3 PicBasic Pro Compiler. controllers. com. The BASIC language is much easier to read and write than Microchip assembly language, and will be used to program the robots in this book. The PicBasic Pro Compiler is “BASIC Stamp IIlike,” and has most of the libraries and functions of both the BASIC Stamp I and II. Because it is a true compiler, programs execute much faster, and may be longer than their Stamp equivalents. THEN(GOTO) of the Stamps. These and other differences are spelled out in the PBP manual.

When working with electronic circuits, a good multimeter is invaluable. 14 (right) is manufactured by Circuit Test and measures capacitance, resistance, and inductance. It is nice to be able to measure the exact values of components when working on precise circuits, but in most cases, this is not necessary. If you are winding your own transformers or chokes, the ability to measure inductance will be helpful. The specific use of the multimeter will be explained during the construction of the robot’s electronics in later chapters.
