Parallax is writing some great companion documentation to go with the Board of Education shield bot kit for Arduino. Chapter 1 is all about your bot’s brain:
The activities in this text will guide you through building the mechanical parts and circuits that make the BOE Shield-Bot work. Then, you’ll write simple programs that make the Arduino and your robot do four essential robotic tasks:
Monitor sensors to detect the world around it
Make decisions based on what it senses
Control its motion (by operating the motors that make its wheels turn)
Exchange information with its roboticist (that will be you!)
