Robotics Books

I saw a post on one of the robotics mailing lists that got me to thinking... I don't think I've ever mentioned what robotics books I like. Here's the list below. I created a Bot Thoughts Bookstore in case you want to order some of these from Amazon. :) :)
  • Intermediate Robot Building - Cook : lots of great explanation and circuits, some programming
  • Applied Robotics - Wise : programming, basic AI, circuits, mechanics
  • Insectronics - Williams : focused on building a walking robot; ideas for sensors
  • Mobile Robots: Inspiration to Implementation - Jones, Flynn : wide array of topics with a little more of the academics behind it all
  • 123 Robotics Experiments for the Evil Genius - Predko : literally 123 different things you can do robot-wise; the first few dozen are super basic, and it builds from there
  • Robots, Androids, and Animatrons - Iovine : some good inspiration but no technical detail
Anyway, hope this helps you on your robotics journey!
