About the author:

Gary Garber is currently an educational consultant. He is working on developing new software tools for the classroom, at the Tufts Center for Engineering Education and Outreach, which is a pioneer in LEGO Robotics Education. His robotics team has worked with Engineers Without Borders, NASA, and the National Science Teachers Association on a variety of engineering and education projects.

The Lego Mindstorms series of kits contain software and hardware to create small, customizable, and programmable robots. They include a programmable brick computer that controls the system, a set of modular sensors and motors, and Lego parts from the Technics line to create the mechanical systems.

Instant LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 is a practical guide that shows readers how to advance from the basic lessons included in the EV3 kit, combine core programming commands, and implement tested design principles when building a robot. The book will help you build a basic robot and download a program to make the robot move. The book will then help the readers to write several increasingly complex programs to add functionality to the robot and use a proportional algorithm to track a line with an optical sensor.

The book will guide the readers through making their robot interact with its environment using touch sensors. Next, using a proportional algorithm, book will teach how to get robots to maintain a given distance to a stationary or moving object.
