Creating Precision Robots
A Project-Based Approach to the Study of Mechatronics and Robotics
Creating Precision Robots: A Project-Based Approach to the Study of Mechatronics and Robotics shows how to use a new Cardboard Engineering technique for the handmade construction of three precision microcomputer controlled robots that hit, throw and shoot. Throughout the book, the authors ensure that mathematical concepts and physical principles are not only rigorously described, but also go hand-in-hand with the design and constructional techniques of the working robot. Detailed theory, building plans and instructions, electric circuits and software algorithms are also included, along with the importance of tolerancing and the correct use of numbers in programming.
The book is designed for students and educators who need a detailed description, mathematical analysis, design solutions, engineering drawings, electric circuits and software coding for the design and construction of real bench-top working robots.
- Provides detailed instructions for the building and construction of specialized robots using line drawings
- Teaches students how to make real working robots with direct meaning in the engineering academic world
- Describes and explains the math and physics theory related to hitting, throwing and shooting robots

In his academic career over two decades, Professor Lin has built up rich research experience in mechanical design, structural mechanics, and control engineering that has grown into engineering application areas leading to aircraft health monitoring, de-icing, and more recently, to the design of nano-devices for energy harvesting. YJ has been on the editorial advisory boards of three international journals in automation, sensors, and robotics. He has also served as PI for a number of NASA sponsored key projects in the development of aircraft mechatronic de-icing systems that was commercialised by the aerospace industry. Currently, he is a PI for a municipal key lab in reconfigurable manufacturing, and for an innovative team project concerned with the sustainable manufacturing of auto parts.
