商品描述

A hands-on, beginner-friendly guide to building and programming LEGO(R) robots.

You're the new owner of a LEGO(R) robotics kit. Now what? Getting Started with LEGO(R) MINDSTORMS teaches you the basics of robotics engineering, using examples compatible with the LEGO(R) MINDSTORMS Robot Inventor and SPIKE Prime sets. You'll be making remote-control vehicles, motorized grabbers, automatic ball launchers, and other exciting robots in no time.

Rather than feature step-by-step instructions for building a handful of models, you'll find essential information and expert tips and tricks for designing, building, and programming your own robotic creations. The book features a comprehensive introduction to coding with Word Blocks, an intuitive visual programming language based on Scratch, and explores topics such as using motors and sensors, building sturdy structures, and troubleshooting problems when things go wrong. As you learn, loads of challenges and open-ended projects will inspire you to try out ideas. Your journey to becoming a confident robot designer begins here.

商品描述(中文翻譯)

一本實用且適合初學者的指南,教你如何建造和編程LEGO(R)機器人。

你現在擁有一個LEGO(R)機器人套件,接下來該怎麼辦呢?《Getting Started with LEGO(R) MINDSTORMS》教你機器人工程的基礎知識,並提供與LEGO(R) MINDSTORMS Robot Inventor和SPIKE Prime套件相容的範例。你將能夠輕鬆製作遙控車輛、電動抓取器、自動發射器等令人興奮的機器人。
