Recommended Books and Magazines
This list of recommended books, magazines, and other hardcopy reference materials is a good starting place for your robotics project. I have used or know someone who has used all of the items listed, and I can recommend them with confidence. The items listed below are linked to online bookstores, where you can order and receive the books within days.
I've rated the books for content and relevance to the course. My rating system is pretty simple: okay, good, and excellent. I'm not listing reference material that isn't useful, so you can be sure that your money won't be wasted. Before buying anything, please shop around (eBay, amazon, barnesandnoble, chapters, etc) to get a good deal.
Aram Salehi (a student from last year's course) mentioned that you can find e-coupons at http://www.techbargains.com, which can give you 30% off orders of $40 or more. Some students have received books in less than three days.
The recommendations are broken up into the following sections:
General Robotics Books
Electronics and Sensors Books
Behaviour and Navigation Books
PIC Microcontroller Books
