  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Decentralized Coverage Control Problems For Mobile Robotic Sensor and Actuator Networksby Andrey V. Savkin; Teddy M. Cheng; Zhiyu Xi; Faizan Javed; Alexey S. Matveev; Hung Nguyen

    Wiley 2015; US$ 99.95 US$ 86.62

    This book introduces various coverage control problems for mobile sensor networks including barrier, sweep and blanket. Unlike many existing algorithms, all of the robotic sensor and actuator motion algorithms developed in the book are fully decentralized or distributed, computationally efficient, easily implementable in engineering practice and based... more...

  • Automation for Roboticsby Luc Jaulin

    Wiley 2015; US$ 124.00 US$ 107.47

    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...

  • Human-Robot Interactionby Waldemar Karwowski; Mansour Rahimi

    CRC Press 2003; US$ 159.95

    As Robotic Systems Become Widespread In The Manufacturing And Service industries, this book is one of few to address the key question of how they interact with humans. more...

  • Artificial Moralityby Peter Danielson

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 45.95

    This book explores the role of artificial intelligence in the development of a claim that morality is person-made and rational. Professor Danielson builds moral robots that do better than amoral competitors in a tournament of games like the Prisoners Dilemma and Chicken. The book thus engages in current controversies over the adequacy of the received... more...

  • Open-Source Robotics and Process Control Cookbookby Lewin Edwards

    Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 72.95

    In this practical reference, popular author Lewin Edwards shows how to develop robust, dependable real-time systems for robotics and other control applications, using open-source tools. It demonstrates efficient and low-cost embedded hardware and software design techniques, based on Linux as the development platform and operating system and the Atmel... more...

  • Autonomous Mobile Robotsby Shuzhi Sam Ge

    CRC Press 2006; US$ 243.00

    It has long been the goal of engineers to develop tools that enhance our ability to do work, increase our quality of life, or perform tasks that are either beyond our ability, too hazardous, or too tedious to be left to human efforts. Autonomous mobile robots are the culmination of decades of research and development, and their potential is seemingly... more...

  • Amphibionicsby Karl Williams

    McGraw-Hill Education 2003; US$ 25.00

    This work provides the hobbyist with detailed mechanical, electronic, and PIC microcontroller knowledge needed to build and program a snake, frog, turtle, and alligator robots. It focuses on the construction of each robot in detail, and then explores the world of slithering, jumping, swimming, and walking robots, and the artificial intelligence needed... more...

  • Build Your Own Combat Robotby Pete Miles; Tom Carroll

    McGraw-Hill Education 2002; US$ 30.00

    Create your own powerful battling robot from start to finish using this easy-to-follow manual. Robotics experts Pete Miles and Tom Carroll explain the science and technology behind robots, and show you what materials you need to build and program a robot for home, school, and competition. more...
