Here’s another book from Packt Publishing which I’ve read recently. As the title says, it’s about learning using the RPI for various robotic projects. After reading it, I think the title should be modifed as BRIEF INTRODUCTION to Raspberry Pi Robotic Projects (yes, with capital letters) :)

The introduction to the RPI is very good, covers everything including how the hardware works, installing the OS, etc. It’s followed by a short chapter on Python and C++ programming, but it’s really really short, and I don’t understand why the author chose C++ with all those pesky standard library functions. Otherwise, all the chapters are well-written and easily understandable. My biggest problem with the book was that the author assumed that the reader has a Windows PC, and he/she can run all those Windows-based tools. Surprisingly, the book covered not just how to build a moving, speaking, seeing robot, but also has a chapter on how to create a sailing or flying one.
