MSP430-based Robot Applications: A Guide to Developing Embedded Systems

Dan Harres 2013

This book provides a careful explanation of the basic areas of electronics and computer architecture, along with lots of examples, to demonstrate the interface, sensor design, programming and microcontroller peripheral setup necessary for embedded systems development. With no need for mechanical knowledge of robots, the book starts by demonstrating how to modify a simple radio-controlled car to create a basic robot. The fundamental electronics of the MSP430 are described, along with...

MSP430 Microcontroller In Embedded System Projects

Ravikumar P. 2012

Embedded Systems are found in every walk of life. We find them in buildings, farms, homes and cars. There are wearable systems that are embedded into shoes and clothing. There is medical electronic equipment implanted inside human bodies. An embedded system requires sensors to convert physical quantities such as sound, light, humidity or pressure into analog electrical signals. An analog frontend interface conditions these signals and converts them into digital form. An embedded...
