  • Robotic Sailingby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 189.00

    While sailing has a long tradition, both as a means of transportation and as a sport, robotic sailing is a fairly new area of research. One of its unique characteristics is the use of wind for propulsion. On the one hand, this allows for long range and long term autonomy. On the other hand, the dependency on changing winds presents a serious challenge... more...

  • Believable Botsby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 129.00

    This book shows how to create believable bots that play computer games and discusses the implications of making them appear human. It examines significant issues in AI: Is a bot that plays like a person intelligent? Does it have emotions? Is it conscious? more...

  • Robotic Sailing 2012by

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 199.00

    Robotic sailing offers the potential of wind propelled vehicles which are sufficiently autonomous to remain at sea for months at a time. These could replace or augment existing oceanographic sampling systems, be used in border surveillance and security or offer a means of carbon neutral transportation. To achieve this represents a complex, multi-disciplinary... more...
