Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
If you are an engineer, a researcher, or a hobbyist, and you are interested in robotics and want to build your own robot, this book is for you. Readers are assumed to be new to robotics but should have experience with Python.
Biografía del autor
Lentin Joseph is an electronics engineer, robotics enthusiast, machine vision expert, embedded programmer, and the founder and CEO of Qbotics Labs (http://www.qboticslabs.com) in India. He got his bachelor's degree in electronics and communication engineering at the Federal Institute of Science and Technology (FISAT), Kerala. In his final year engineering project, he created a social robot, which can interact with people. The project was a huge success and got mentioned in visual and print media. The main feature of this robot was that it could communicate with people and reply intelligently. It also has some image-processing capabilities, such as face, motion, and color detection. The entire project was implemented using the Python programming language. His interest in robotics, image processing, and Python began this project. After graduation, he worked at a start-up company based on robotics and image processing for 3 years. In the meantime, he learned famous robotic software platforms-such as Robot Operating system (ROS), V-REP, and Actin (a robotic simulation tool)-and image processing libraries, such as OpenCV, OpenNI, and PCL. He also knows about robot 3D designing, embedded programming on Arduino, and Stellaris Launchpad. After 3 years of work experience, he started a new company called Qbotics Labs, which is mainly focused on research to build great products in domains such as wearable technology, robotics, machine vision, green technology, and online education. He maintains a personal website (http://www.lentinjoseph.com) and a technology blog called technolabsz (http://www.technolabsz.com). He publishes his works on his tech blog. He was a speaker at PyCon2013 India, and he spoke on the topic of learning robotics using Python.

He takes all the pieces that are out there and shows you how to integrate them all into an advanced robot. It wasn't what I expected from the book but I was pleasantly surprised since it was exactly what I need to get myself to that advanced robot I really want to build.
Warning, that the directions may be out of date (it is predicated on an older version of ROS) and you will need to use the internet and/or other resources to do all of the things he documents. It is still worth every penny
The author obviously knows the subject but I found it difficult to follow all the steps when in particular section. For instance, using Gazebo for robotic simulation, the author shifts between the turtlebot and chefbot without clear and precise directions. There are also missing steps in the process, where I had to figure out how to get to an end goal. This is frustrating and will surely turn-off many readers. It kind of reminded me of some my old engineering undergrad texts where the author left you high and try with a statement like "It is left to the reader to complete the derivation..."
The editing also needs improvement. The grammar is stifled and it appears that English is a second language to the author. If not, the author really should get a much better copy editor.
I would consider this book to be appropriate for intermediate or advanced robotic enthusiasts; definitely not for beginners.
I am building a turtlebot clone and I did find this book helpful in that endeavor.
