  • A Concise Introduction to Multiagent Systems and Distributed Artificial Intelligenceby Nikos Vlassis

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2007; US$ 40.00

    Multiagent systems is an expanding field that blends classical fields like game theory and decentralized control with modern fields like computer science and machine learning. This monograph provides a concise introduction to the subject, covering the theoretical foundations as well as more recent developments in a coherent and readable manner.The... more...

  • Hybrid Control and Motion Planning of Dynamical Legged Locomotionby Nasser Sadati; Guy A. Dumont; Kaveh Akabri Hamed; William A. Gruver

    Wiley 2012; US$ 110.95 US$ 96.16

    A much-needed, state-of-the-art guide on building complex legged robots Robot control of dynamical legged locomotion has seen tremendous advances in recent decades, with hundreds of walking mechanisms being built in laboratories worldwide, helping people with disabilities and serving as replacements for humans operating in hazardous environments.... more...

  • Distributed Computing by Oblivious Mobile Robotsby Paola Flocchini; Giuseppe Prencipe; Nicola Santoro

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2012; US$ 50.00

    The study of what can be computed by a team of autonomous mobile robots, originally started in robotics and AI, has become increasingly popular in theoretical computer science (especially in distributed computing), where it is now an integral part of the investigations on computability by mobile entities. The robots are identical computational entities... more...

  • Synergetic Agentsby Hermann Haken; Paul Levi

    Wiley 2012; US$ 206.95 US$ 179.36

    This book addresses both multi robot systems and miniaturization to the nanoscale from a unifying point of view, but without leaving aside typical particularities of either. The unifying aspect is based on the concept of information minimization whose precise formulation is the Haken-Levi-principle. The authors introduce basic concepts of multi-component... more...

  • ENACTION, EMBODIMENT, EVOLUTIONARY ROBOTICSby Marieke Rohde

    Atlantis Press 2010; US$ 119.00

    This is an unusual book. It launches a new style of research into the nature of the mind, a style that pro?ciently uncovers, explores and exploits the synergies between complex systems thinking, sophisticated theoretical critique, synthetic modeling technologies and experimental work. Rather than adopting a grandiose programmatic approach, Marieke... more...

  • HTC Vivid Survival Guideby Toly K

    MobileReference 2012; US$ 3.99

    The HTC Vivid is a 4G Android smartphone, and one of the first to receive the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update. The Ice Cream Sandwich operating system opens up new possibilities and improves the performance of the Vivid. The HTC Vivid Survival Guide organizes the wealth of knowledge about the HTC Vivid into one place, where it can be easily accessed... more...

  • Simulation and Modeling Related to Computational Science and Robotics Technologyby F. Kojima; F. Kobayashi; H. Nakamoto

    IOS Press 2012; US$ 181.00

    Simulation and modeling contribute to a broad range of applications in computational science and robotics technology, often addressing important design and control problems.This book presents a selection of papers from the International Workshop on Simulation and Modeling related to Computational Science and Robotics Technology (SiMCTR 2011), held... more...

  • Robotic Navigation and Mapping with Radarby Martin Adams; Ebi Jose

    Artech House 2012; US$ 109.00

    Focusing on autonomous robotic applications, this cutting-edge resource offers you a practical treatment of short-range radar processing for reliable object detection at the ground level. This unique book demonstrates probabilistic radar models and detection algorithms specifically for robotic land vehicles. It examines grid based robotic mapping with... more...

  • Microrobotics for Micromanipulationby Nicolas Chaillet; Stéphane Régnier

    Wiley 2013; US$ 236.00 US$ 204.53

    Microrobotics for Micromanipulation presents for the first time, in detail, the sector of robotics for handling objects of micrometer dimensions. At these dimensions, the behavior of objects is significantly different from the better known, higher scales, which leads us to implement solutions sometimes radically different from those most commonly... more...

  • Control Dynamics of Robotic Manipulatorsby J Skowronski

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    Control Dynamics of Robotic Manipulators deals with both theory and mechanics of control and systems dynamics used in robotic movements. The book discusses mechanical models of robot manipulators in relation to modular RP-unit manipulators, multiple mechanical system (Cartesian Model), or generalized coordinates (Lagrangian Model). The text also describes... more...
