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

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 111.00

    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...

  • FIELD ROBOTICSby Philippe Bidaud; Mohammad O. Tokhi; Christophe Grand

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 376.00

    This book provides state of the art scientific and engineering research findings and developments in the area of mobile robotics and associated support technologies. The book contains peer reviewed articles presented at the CLAWAR 2011 conference. A great deal of interest is vested in the use of robots outside the factory environment. The CLAWAR conference... more...

  • Algorithms for Reinforcement Learningby Csaba Szepesvari

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2010; US$ 35.00

    Reinforcement learning is a learning paradigm concerned with learning to control a system so as to maximize a numerical performance measure that expresses a long-term objective. What distinguishes reinforcement learning from supervised learning is that only partial feedback is given to the learner about the learner's predictions. Further, the predictions... more...

  • Arduino Internalsby Dale Wheat

    Apress 2012; US$ 38.49

    Arduino Internals guides you to the heart of the Arduino board. Author  Dale Wheat shares his intimate knowledge of the Arduino board?its secrets, its strengths and possible alternatives to its constituent parts are laid open to scrutiny in this book. You'll learn to build new, improved Arduino boards and peripherals, while conforming to the Arduino... more...

  • Practical Arduino Engineeringby Harold Timmis

    Apress 2012; US$ 38.49

    Arduino boards have impressed both hackers and professional engineers. Whether you're a hobbyist or a professional, it isn't just a breadboard and a hazy idea that keeps you going. It's essential to institute a proper design, device instrumentation and, indeed, test your project thoroughly before committing to a particular prototype. Practical... more...

  • Intelligent Autonomous Roboticsby Peter Stone

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2007; US$ 40.00

    Robotics technology has recently advanced to the point of being widely accessible for relatively low-budget research, as well as for graduate, undergraduate, and even secondary and primary school education. This lecture provides an example of how to productively use a cutting-edge advanced robotics platform for education and research by providing a... 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...

  • 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$ 200.95

    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...
