This book gives a brief overview of Microcontrollers. Microcontroller (or microprocessor) can be described as the core of the robot control is generally applied to all areas of our life. It attemps to provide a thorough understanding and application of a micro-controller features. Microcontroller used in this book is based on the *BASIC Commander ® , by Innovati. The microcontroller uses the innoBASIC Workshop development environment, similar to the BASIC language syntax – easy to get started.
Complex microcontroller and peripheral devices are packaged into an easy-to-understand innoBASIC command, so that the user need not delve into the internal architecture of the chip. Thus, even non-electronic related professional backgrounds can quickly become familiar with the entire system. The book will be base on sample application of InnoBot and InnoRace – describes the obstacle avoidance, line following, racing car handling principles and the PID control program writing skills.
