  • Practical and Experimental Roboticsby Ferat Sahin; Pushkin Kachroo

    CRC Press 2007; US$ 121.95

    Taking a completely hands-on approach, using cheap and easily available robotics kits, Practical and Experimental Robotics provides a detailed exploration of the construction, theory, and experiments for different types of robots. With topics ranging from basic stamp microcontrollers to biped and propeller based robots, the text contains laboratory... more...

  • Robot Brainsby Pentti O. Haikonen

    Wiley 2007; US$ 155.00 US$ 139.50

    Haikonen envisions autonomous robots that perceive and understand the world directly, acting in it in a natural human-like way without the need of programs and numerical representation of information. By developing higher-level cognitive functions through the power of artificial associative neuron architectures, the author approaches the issues of... more...

  • Advances in Robot Kinematicsby Jadran Lenarcic; B. Roth

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 188.98

    This is the tenth book in the series of Advances in Robot Kinematics. Two were produced as workshop proceedings, Springer published one book in 1991 and since 1994 Kluwer published a book every two years without interruptions. 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$ 177.17

    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$ 67.32

    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...

  • Distributed Autonomous Robotic System 6by Richard Alami; Raja Chatila; Hajime Asama

    Springer Japan 2008; US$ 153.54

    DARS is now a well-established conference that gathers every two years the main researchers in Distributed Robotics systems. Even if the field is growing, it has been maintained a one-track conference in order to enforce effective exchanges between the main researchers in the field. It now a well-established tradition to publish the main contributions... more...

  • Modeling, Identification and Control of Robotsby W. Khalil; E. Dombre

    Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 113.00

    Written by two of Europe’s leading robotics experts, this book provides the tools for a unified approach to the modelling of robotic manipulators, whatever their mechanical structure. No other publication covers the three fundamental issues of robotics: modelling, identification and control. It covers the development of various mathematical models... more...

  • The Path to Autonomous Robotsby Gaurav Sukhatme

    Springer US 2008; US$ 153.54

    The principal chapters of this book form a collection of technical articles sp- ning many areas of research in robotics, these are followed by a set of short r- iniscences and tributes written by former students of Professor George A. Bekey. Professor Bekey, a pioneer in robotics, retired from the University of Southern C- ifornia (USC) in 2002 after... more...

  • Autonomous Robotsby Farbod Fahimi

    Springer US 2008; US$ 153.54

    This comprehensible book covers the kinematics and dynamic modeling/analysis of Autonomous Robots, as well as the methods suitable for their control. The contents are unique and this volume presents material never gathered within one book. more...

  • Robots, Reasoning, and Reificationby James P. Gunderson; Louise F. Gunderson

    Springer US 2008; US$ 116.82

    This book focuses on a critical obstacle that is preventing the development of intelligent, autonomous robots: the gap between the ability to reason about the world and the ability to sense the world and translate that sensory data into a symbolic model. more...
