Concise Encyclopedia of Robotics

Concise Encyclopedia of Robotics by Stan Gibilisco
Not available

Written by S. L. Tanimoto, University of Washington

Robotics contains elements of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer science. One of the challenges in reading a robotics text or entering the field as a hobbyist is the variety of concepts and terminology one must know. This book, a "how things work" for the robotics field, provides about 400 brief articles explaining concepts from "acoustic proximity sensor" to "zooming." Some entries are very short; "Guidance System," for example, requires only two sentences and refers to other articles. A longer article like "Logic Gate" is a page and a half long, including a diagram and table. Most topics are technical, but some are philosophical, such as "Jungian World Theory."

This well-written book is not an introduction to robotics--there is no "history" article, and no article titled "Robot" or "Robotics"--but it is likely to be a useful reference for students and hobbyists. Summing Up: Recommended.
