The aim of "Evil Genius" is to create an enjoyable e-book made of a sequence of tasks that would clarify electronics from static electrical energy (rubbing a balloon) to constructing robots. The booklet will contain the instruments precious for the reader to create the tasks within the ebook at little or no expense or inconvenience. The e-book may be divided into 19 sections, each with or extra projects.The creation to every part will take in pages, in addition to the "For Consideration" on the finish. The part creation and "For Consideration" will clarify the historical past, idea, and components within the part. every one venture will use fabric available at "Radio Shack", "Wal-Mart", "Home Depot" and "Toys 'R Us". at times, the reader must visit Digi-Key or Jameco. it's going to additionally concentrate on utilizing prebuilt parts the place ever attainable besides utilizing universal chips rather than development circuits out of discrete elements. the most important sections are: begin right here; easy electronics; semiconductors; utilized electronics; electronic electronics; the PICmicro microcontroller and "C" programming language; video games and purposes; robotic muscle tissues; robotic sensors; robotic constructions; and, pattern robotic purposes.

PRM methods usually do not ensure this property. Only the work of Schmitzberger  considers the problem formally and sketches a method for encoding the set of homotopy classes inside a probabilistic roadmap. However, the approach is only applied on two-dimensional problems and its extension is limited by the diﬃculty of characterizing homotopic deformations in higher dimensions. qf qi qi qf n2 n2 n1 n1 Fig. 1. Two examples of query for a 2 nodes graph (n1 -n2 ). In the left picture, the solution path (qi -n1 -n2 -qf ) extracted from the graph could be easily deformed into the displayed short path connecting query conﬁgurations (qi , qg ) whereas a deformation in Cf ree would be much complex in the case of the right picture.
This problem is illustrated by the example in Figure 1. Here Cf ree contains only one homotopy class. Therefore, an homotopy-based roadmap would have a tree structure, such as the simple 2 nodes (n1 ,n2 ) tree shown in the ﬁgure. While for the left query example, the solution path (qi -n1 n2 -qf ) found in the roadmap could be easily deformed into the displayed short path connecting query conﬁgurations (qi , qg ), a free deformation would be much diﬃcult to compute for the right example. Even if the topological nature of the two displayed paths is the same, their diﬀerence is such that it is preferable to store a representation of both paths in the roadmap.
