Which is the best way to build robots?
May 7, 2010
I'm lost and can't choose which way to go, I read David Cook's book, I read LMR's starter guide and some other sources. Saw a lot of robots in action here and there but I can't still choose which way to use, a programable robot wither using PICAXE or Arduino or even to stick to non-programable robots just like the one in David's book which is called Sandwich robot.
I can see each of these ways has its own features, advantages and downsides but I would rather hear it from professionals who tried most of these ways. My aim is to achieve more knowledge in this field, I'm not in hurry to build my own robot. I purchased some parts for David's robot, waiting for my PICAXE starter pack to arrive "This is another problem I have as I can't find these parts easily here in Japan due to my lack in Japanese language so I purchase them from online stores and ebay which adds extra shipping fees and delays for my progress".
So, to summarize this up, which way is recommended to adopt? A non-programable robots building "I assume it's not", PICAXE, Arduino or another way "please state it"?
Thanks in advance, waiting for your replies.
