The LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Discovery Book is a complete beginner's guide to the EV3 kit from bestselling author and robotics expert Laurens Valk. This full color book teaches you fundamental programming and robotics skills as you build and program powerful robots that move, monitor sensors, and respond to their environments. You will build seven increasingly sophisticated robots like the BRICK SORT3R (a robot that sorts bricks by color and size), the THE SNATCH3R (an autonomous robotic arm), and LAVA R3X (a humanoid that walks and talks). Valk also covers more advanced programming techniques like data wires and variables, and shows you how to create custom remote control programs. More than 100 building and programming challenges throughout encourage you to think creatively and to apply what you've learned to invent your own robots.
