i came to know that 8051 can well b used and programmed to make robots.can any plz tell me where can i get to read more abt this.i would appriciate if some1 can tell me if i can use C language for programming and how.
Yes, 8051 like many microcontrollers like PIC etc can be used to make robots.
8051 is popular because of ease of availability of the device with many versions
(i.e with many combinations of pheripherals and memory) and associated
Kiel Compiler can be used for cross compiling for 8051 if you want to write your code in C.
this is a good book, it is good for beginners,
it depend on the 8051 family microcontrollers. and it describes the keil C compiler www.keil.com
it full by exapmles.(start from blinking LED to creat your own operating system). it called Embedded C you can download it from the next link.
You can use any 8-bit controller for making robots. Some people prefer PIC and some AVR. And if your robot is very high end you can go for 16-bit or 32-bit controller. For small robotics application you can go for any 8-bit controller.
