  • Automation for Roboticsby Luc Jaulin

    Wiley 2015; US$ 120.00

    In order to enable a better understanding of the key concepts of automation, this book develops the fundamental aspects of the field while also proposing numerous concrete exercises and their solutions. The theoretical approach that it presents fundamentally uses the state space and makes it possible to process general and complex systems in a simple... more...

  • Bio-Inspired Emergent Control of Locomotion Systemsby Mattia Frasca; Paolo Arena; Luigi Fortuna

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 86.00

    This book deals with locomotion control of biologically inspired robots realized through an analog circuital paradigm as cellular nonlinear networks. It presents a general methodology for the control of bio-inspired robots and several case studies, as well as describes a new approach to motion control and the related circuit architecture. more...

  • Bio-inspired Flying Robotsby Jean-Christophe Zufferey

    EFPL Press 2008; US$ 83.95

    This book demonstrates how bio-inspiration can lead to fully autonomous flying robots without relying on external aids. Most existing aerial robots fly in open skies, far from obstacles, and rely on external beacons, mainly GPS, to localise and navigate. However, these robots are not able to fly at low altitude or in confined environments, and yet... more...

  • CLUSTER COMPUTING FOR ROBOTICS AND COMPUTER VISIONby Damian M. Lyons

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 64.00

    In this book, we look at how cluster technology can be leveraged to build better robots. Algorithms and approaches in key areas of robotics and computer vision, such as map building, target tracking, action selection and landmark learning, are reviewed and cluster implementations for these are presented. The objective of the book is to give professionals... more...

  • Concise Encyclopedia of Roboticsby Stan Gibilisco

    McGraw-Hill Education 2002; US$ 21.95

    OVER 400 UP-TO-THE-MINUTE TERMS INSTANT CLARIFICATION ON ROBOTICS AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TERMS, TECHNIQUES, AND SYSTEMS This handy collection of straightforward, to-the-point definitions is exactly what robotics and artificial intelligence hobbyists need to get and stay up to speed with all new terms that have recently emerged in robotics... more...

  • 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...

  • Connectionist Robot Motion Planningby Bartlett Mel

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 31.95

    Connectionist Robot Motion Planning: A Neurally-Inspired Approach to Visually-Guided Reaching is the third series in a cluster of books on robotics and related areas as part of the Perspectives in Artificial Intelligence Series. This series focuses on an experimental paradigm using the MURPHY system to tackle critical issues surrounding robot motion... 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...

  • Control and Dynamic Systems V39: Advances in Robotic Systems Part 1 of 2by C.T. Leonides

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    Advances in Robotic Systems, Part 1 shows how the activity in robotic systems has increased significantly over the past decade. Major centers of research and development in robotic systems were established on the international scene, and these became focal points for the brilliant research efforts of many academicians and industrial professionals.... more...
