  • Reasoning Robotsby Michael Thielscher

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 81.64

    The creation of intelligent robots is surely one of the most exciting and ch- lenginggoals of Arti?cial Intelligence. A robot is, ?rst of all, nothing but an inanimate machine with motors and sensors. In order to bring life to it, the machine needs to be programmed so as to make active use of its hardware c- ponents. This turns a machine into an autonomous... more...

These books deal with the theory and practice of robot kinematics and treat the motion of robots, in particular robot manipulators,... more...

  • Quadrupedal Locomotionby Pablo González de Santos; Elena Garcia; Joaquin Estremera

    Springer London 2007; US$ 163.30

    Legged robots have proven to be a promising locomotion system, capable of performing tasks that conventional vehicles cannot perform. Even more exc- ing is the fact that this is a rapidly developing ?eld of study for researchers from a variety of disciplines. Over the past three decades, legged locomotion technology has been developed all over the... more...

  • Towards Affordance-Based Robot Controlby Erich Rome; Joachim Hertzberg; Georg Dorffner

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 62.05

    Today?s mobile robot perception is insu?cient for acting goal-directedly in - constrained, dynamic everyday environments like a home, a factory, or a city. Subject to restrictions in bandwidth, computer power, and computation time, a robot has to react to a wealth of dynamically changing stimuli in such - vironments, requiring rapid, selective attention... more...
