Download The Visual Neuroscience of Robotic Grasping: Achieving by Eris Chinellato,Angel P. del Pobil PDF

By Eris Chinellato,Angel P. del Pobil

This ebook provides interdisciplinary learn that pursues the mutual enrichment of neuroscience and robotics. construction on experimental paintings, and at the wealth of literature concerning the cortical pathways of visible processing - the dorsal and ventral streams - we outline and enforce, computationally and on a true robotic, a sensible version of the mind components considering vision-based greedy actions.
Grasping in robotics is basically an unsolved challenge, and we convey how the bio-inspired strategy is winning in facing a few basic problems with the duty. Our robot method can adequately practice greedy activities on various unmodeled gadgets, denoting specifically trustworthy visible and visuomotor skills.
The computational version and the robot experiments assist in validating theories at the mechanisms hired through the mind parts extra at once all for greedy activities. This booklet bargains new insights and learn hypotheses relating to such mechanisms, specially for what issues the interplay among the dorsal and ventral streams. in addition, it is helping in constructing a typical learn framework for neuroscientists and roboticists concerning study on mind functions.

Download Roboter mit Raspberry Pi: Mit Motoren, Sensoren, LEGO® und by E.F. Engelhardt PDF

By E.F. Engelhardt

Roboter sind längst Teil unseres täglichen Lebens, als Rasenmäher, Staubsauger oder auch in der Industrie. Für Maker sind Roboter ein optimales Betätigungsfeld: Handwerk, Elektronik und Informatik verbinden sich zur perfekten Symbiose. Der Raspberry Pi ist als vollwertiger Minicomputer das perfekte Gehirn für Ihren Roboter. E. F. Engelhardt zeigt Ihnen, wie Sie am besten die Synapsen mit Leben füllen.

Für maschinelle Bewegung bieten sich Motoren an. Damit diese Bewegungen einer gewissen Genauigkeit folgen, sind Schrittmotoren erforderlich. Wie Sie Motoren über die GPIO ansteuern, zeigt Ihnen ein ausführliches Kapitel. Damit der Roboter nicht einfach ohne Strom stehen bleibt, lernen Sie, wie eine USV integriert werden kann. Damit ist der Tagesausflug mit Roboter gesichert.

Das erlernte Wissen setzt Engelhardt direkt in konkreten Projekten um: Bauen Sie eine eigene Pan-/Tilt-Kamera. Ein RC-Car lässt sich sehr einfach mit dem Pi steuern und der Staubsaugerroboter ist auch schnell angezapft. Mit der GPIO und dem zuvor gezeigten Basiswissen lassen sich vielfältige Roboterprojekte umsetzen.

Die LEGO®-Mindstorms-Serie stellt bereits Roboter zur Programmierung zur Verfügung. Über den BrickPi lassen sich diese sehr intestine mit dem Raspberry Pi steuern - eine aufregende Kombination. Mit dem BrickPi können Sie auch wunderbar einen Roboter mit LEGO®, aber ohne LEGO®-Mindstorms, realisieren. Holen Sie die alten LEGO®-Steine hervor und machen Sie den Lötkolben heiß! Und nicht vergessen: Tür schließen, sonst läuft der Roboter raus.

Aus dem Inhalt:

  • Lenken und Steuern mit der GPIO-Schnittstelle
  • SPI-Schnittstelle aktivieren
  • Analog-digital-Wandler MCP3008
  • Joystick-Steuerung
  • Touch- und Drucksensor
