Finite state machines (FSMs) provide the answers to the preceding questions. FSMs are a software technique that you can use to model simple behavior for robots. I’ll briefly discuss these FSMs in theory and then you’ll apply your understanding in a practical example. Later in this chapter, I’ll show you a general way to implement such FSMs. The NXT Turtle in Chapter 6, as well as JohnNXT in Chapter 8, use this technique to feature autonomous behaviors. Finally, you’ll learn an elegant implementation of a particular kind of FSM—decision tables.
This robot is representative of the first category I discussed in this book: interlacing legs bipeds. In addition, I’ve also given you the first smattering of NXC programming. Not so scary, is it? After learning some more theory in Chapter 3, you’ll be able to build and program a scale-sized replica of the imperial AT-ST in Chapter 4: the All Terrain Scout Transport walker from the Star Wars saga. 45 CHAPTER 3 ■■■ Finite State Machines M ost simple robots don’t show much interesting behavior. Usually, a sequential program flow regulates their actions: the robot walks until it sees an obstacle, it backs up and turns, and then starts walking forward again in a loop.
Later in this chapter, I’ll show you a general way to implement such FSMs. The NXT Turtle in Chapter 6, as well as JohnNXT in Chapter 8, use this technique to feature autonomous behaviors. Finally, you’ll learn an elegant implementation of a particular kind of FSM—decision tables. Finite State Machines in Brief Let me introduce a bit of the theory behind FSMs. I promise I’ll be brief; however, some definition is needed here for you to understand what you’ll put in practice later. A finite state machine or finite state automaton (plural automata) is a model of behavior composed of a finite number of internal states (or simply states), the transitions between these states, the set of events that can occur, and actions performed.
