  • Visual Navigationby Yiannis Aloimonos

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    All biological systems with vision move about their environments and successfully perform many tasks. The same capabilities are needed in the world of robots. To that end, recent results in empirical fields that study insects and primates, as well as in theoretical and applied disciplines that design robots, have uncovered a number of the principles... more...

  • Active Sensors for Local Planning in Mobile Roboticsby Penelope Probert Smith

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 79.00

    This book describes recent work on active sensors for mobile robots. An active sensor interacts with its surroundings to supply data on demand for a particular function, gathering and abstracting information according to need rather than acting as a generic data gatherer. Details of the physical operation are hidden. The book deals mainly with active... more...

  • Adaptive Neural Network Control of Robotic Manipulatorsby Shuzhi S. Ge; Tong H. Lee; Christopher J. Harris

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1998; US$ 61.00

    Recently, there has been considerable research interest in neural network control of robots, and satisfactory results have been obtained in solving some of the special issues associated with the problems of robot control in an “on-and-off” fashion. This book is dedicated to issues on adaptive control of robots based on neural networks.... more...
