Discover the difference between making a robot move and making a robot think . Using Mindstorms EV3 and LeJOS-an open source project for Java Mindstorms projects-you´ll learn how to create Artificial Intelligence (AI) for your bot. Your robot will learn how to problem solve, how to plan, and how to communicate. Along the way, you´ll learn about classical AI algorithms for teaching hardware how to think; algorithms that you can then apply to your own robotic inspirations. If you´ve ever wanted to learn about robotic intelligence in a practical, playful way, Beginning Robotics Programming in Java with LEGO Mindstorms is for you. What you´ll learn: Build your first LEGO EV3 robot step-by-step Install LeJOS and its firmware on Lego EV3 Create and upload your first Java program into Lego EV3 Work with Java programming for motors Understand robotics behavior programming with sensors Review common AI algorithms, such as DFS, BFS, and Dijkstra´s Algorithm Who this book is for: Students, teachers, and makers with basic Java programming experience who want to learn how to apply Artificial Intelligence to a practical robotic system.
Create your own LoRa wireless projects for non-industrial use and gain a strong basic understanding of the LoRa technology, LoRa WAN, and LPWAN. You´ll start by building your first LoRa wireless channel and then move on to various interesting projects such as setting up networks with a LoRa gateway, communicating with IoT servers using RESTful API and MQTT protocol, and real-time GPS tracking. With LoRa wireless and LoRaWAN, you can build a wide array of applications in the area of smart agriculture, smart cities, smart environment, smart healthcare, smart homes and buildings, smart industrial control, smart metering, smart supply chain and logistics. Beginning LoRa Radio Networks with Arduino provides a practical introduction and uses affordable and easy to obtain hardware to build projects with the Arduino development environment. What You´ll Learn Understand the hardware need to build LoRaWAN Use the Arduino development environment to write code Connect to Arduino hardware and upload programs and communicate with them Setup networks with LoRa gateway Show real time track with tail, and path history Who This Book Is For Inventors, hackers, crafters, students, hobbyists, and scientists
