Manipulator: E-Book for a robotic arm

Since six years, the polish RoboNET educates children in robotics using LEGO® MINDSTORMS NXT. Originally organized in summer vacation courses called RoboCAMP, the courses are given also during school time now in whole of Poland, mainly in the areas of Gdansk and Warsaw.

The RoboCAMP people have published a new E-Book called "Manipulator LEGO NXT" now; it shows how to build and program a remotely controlled robotic arm with a single NXT 2.0 set:

After a small introduction into manipulators in general and their use in industry and military, there are very clear and instructive building instructions and step-by-step instructions for programming the robotic arm with NXT-G.
"Manipulator" is suited both for beginners as well as advanced builders who can gain interesting insights in particular in the creative mechanism for the grabber that can lift and grab using just one single motor.

At the end, there is a list with previous publications of RoboCAMP.
