"Leverage Raspberry Pi 3 and different JavaScript platforms to build exciting Robotics projects

Key Features

*Build robots that light up and make noise

*Learn to work with Raspberry Pi 3 and JavaScript

*Connect your Johnny-Five projects to external APIs and create your own IoT

Book Description

There has been a rapid increase in the use of JavaScript in hardware and embedded device programming. JavaScript has an effective set of frameworks and libraries that support the robotics ecosystem.

Hands-On Robotics with JavaScript starts with setting up an environment to program robots in JavaScript. Then, you will dive into building basic-level projects such as a line-following robot. You will walk through a series of projects that will teach you about the Johnny-Five library, and develop your skills with each project. As you make your way through the chapters, you'll work on creating a blinking LED, before moving on to sensors and other more advanced concepts. You will then progress to building an advanced-level AI-enabled robot, connect their NodeBots to the internet, create a NodeBots Swarm, and explore MQTT.

By the end of this book, you will have gained hands-on experience in building robots using JavaScriptWhat you will learn

*Install and run Node.js and Johnny-Five on Raspberry Pi

*Assemble, code, and run an LED project

*Leverage JavaScript libraries to build exciting robots

*Use sensors to collect data from the world around you

*Employ servos and motors to make your project move

*Add internet capabilities to your Johnny-Five project

Who this book is for

Hands-On Robotics with JavaScript is for individuals who have prior experience with Raspberry Pi 3 and like to write sketches in JavaScript. Basic knowledge of JavaScript and Node.js will help you get the most out of this book."
