English | ISBN: 9781838555795 | 732 pages | February 26, 2019 | EPUB | 60.8 MB

Build clever, collaborative, and powerful automation systems with the Raspberry Pi and Python.

Key Features
Create your own Pi-Rover or Pi-Hexipod robots
Develop practical applications in Python using Raspberry Pi
Build your own Jarvis, a highly advanced computerized AI
Book Description
This Learning Path takes you on a journey in the world of robotics and teaches you all that you can achieve with Raspberry Pi and Python.

It teaches you to harness the power of Python with the Raspberry Pi 3 and the Raspberry Pi zero to build superlative automation systems that can transform your business. You will learn to create text classifiers, predict sentiment in words, and develop applications with the Tkinter library. Things will get more interesting when you build a human face detection and recognition system and a home automation system in Python, where different appliances are controlled using the Raspberry Pi. With such diverse robotics projects, you’ll grasp the basics of robotics and its functions, and understand the integration of robotics with the IoT environment.

By the end of this Learning Path, you will have covered everything from configuring a robotic controller, to creating a self-driven robotic vehicle using Python.
