In what is described as the first affordable educational book of its kind, Conrad (electrical and computer engineering, U. of North Carolina-Charlotte) introduces robotics and embedded systems. He includes clear directions for making the Stiquito robot introduced in 1992, a list of parts suppliers, and glossary. The kit includes the microcontroller board and other hardware necessary (excluding batteries and tools) for building the insect-like robot that can walk with two different gaits. The International Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE) Computer Society, which helped produce the book, offers Web site support for this project. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
