  • 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...

  • Essential Principles for Autonomous Roboticsby Henry Hexmoor

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2013; US$ 40.00

    From driving, flying, and swimming, to digging for unknown objects in space exploration, autonomous robots take on varied shapes and sizes. In part, autonomous robots are designed to perform tasks that are too dirty, dull, or dangerous for humans. With nontrivial autonomy and volition, they may soon claim their own place in human society. These robots... more...

  • Fundamentals in Modeling and Control of Mobile Manipulatorsby Zhijun Li; Shuzhi Sam Ge

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 154.95

    Mobile manipulators combine the advantages of mobile platforms and robotic arms, extending their operational range and functionality to large spaces and remote, demanding, and/or dangerous environments. They also bring complexity and difficulty in dynamic modeling and control system design. However, advances in nonlinear system analysis and control... more...

  • Man-Machine Dialogueby Frederic Landragin

    Wiley 2013; US$ 91.00 US$ 78.87

    This book summarizes the main problems posed by the design of a man?machine dialogue system and offers ideas on how to continue along the path towards efficient, realistic and fluid communication between humans and machines. A culmination of ten years of research, it is based on the author?s development, investigation and experimentation covering... more...

  • Aufgaben zur Elektrotechnik 2by Christian Spieker; Oliver Haas; Karsten Golde; Christian Gierl; Sujoy Paul

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 28.02

    Ziel des Buches ist eine Heranführung an die Klausur und eine Erleichterung des Verständnisses der Vorlesung Grundlagen der Elektrotechnik 2. Die Aufgabensammlung ist didaktisch an das Lehrbuch Grundgebiete der Elektrotechnik 2 von Clausert und Wiesemann angelehnt, so dass der Leser passend zu den jeweiligen Kapiteln anspruchsvolle Aufgaben mit Lösungsweg... 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...

  • Feedback Control of Dynamic Bipedal Robot Locomotionby Eric R. Westervelt; Jessy W. Grizzle; Christine Chevallereau; Jun Ho Choi; Benjamin Morris

    CRC Press 2007; US$ 231.00

    Bipedal locomotion is among the most difficult challenges in control engineering. Most books treat the subject from a quasi-static perspective, overlooking the hybrid nature of bipedal mechanics. Feedback Control of Dynamic Bipedal Robot Locomotion is the first book to present a comprehensive and mathematically sound treatment of feedback design for... more...

  • Robot Framework Test Automationby Sumit Bisht

    Packt Publishing 2013; US$ 17.99

    Written in an engaging, easy-to-follow style, this practical guide will teach you to create test suites and automated acceptance Tests with the Robot Framework.If you are an automation engineer, QA engineer, developer or tester who is looking to get started with Robot Framework, as well as find a standardized testing solution, this book is ideal for... more...

  • Mobile Platform Securityby N. Asokan; Lucas Davi; Alexandra Dmitrienko; Stephan Heuser

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2013; US$ 40.00

    Recently, mobile security has garnered considerable interest in both the research community and industry due to the popularity of smartphones. The current smartphone platforms are open systems that allow application development, also for malicious parties. To protect the mobile device, its user, and other mobile ecosystem stakeholders such as network... more...

  • Visual Servoingby Hashimoto Koichi

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1993; US$ 74.00 US$ 60.68

    This book treats visual feedback control of mechanical systems , mostly robot manipulators. It not only deals with image processing techniques and robot control schemes but also covers the latest investigation of the design of the visual servo mechanism based on modern linear and nonlinear control theory , the adaptive control scheme , fuzzy logic... more...
