Exploring TeleRobotics: A Radio-Controlled Robot
Deal, Walter F., III; Hsiung, Steve C.
Technology Teacher, v67 n2 p11-17 Oct 2007
Robotics is a rich and exciting multidisciplinary area to study and learn about electronics and control technology. The interest in robotic devices and systems provides the technology teacher with an excellent opportunity to make many concrete connections between electronics, control technology, and computers and science, engineering, and technology. This article introduces the concept of telerobotics--that is to control a robotic system remotely using lowcost, off-the-shelf radio transmitter and receiver electronics. (Contains 6 figures, 2 tables, and 4 resources.)
