Features

  • Examines state-of-the-art theoretical, technical, and practical issues common to both centralized and distributed autonomous robotic systems
  • Provides a coherent view of autonomous robots at the systems level
  • Offers expert guidance on the sensors, control, planning and coordination, and decision making aspects of autonomous mobile robots
  • Guides in system integration and architecture design, as well as the deployment and applications of autonomous robotic systems
  • Summary

    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 unlimited.

    Roadmap to the Future
    Serving as the first comprehensive reference on this interdisciplinary technology, Autonomous Mobile Robots: Sensing, Control, Decision Making, and Applications authoritatively addresses the theoretical, technical, and practical aspects of the field. The book examines in detail the key components that form an autonomous mobile robot, from sensors and sensor fusion to modeling and control, map building and path planning, and decision making and autonomy, and to the final integration of these components for diversified applications.

    Trusted Guidance
    A duo of accomplished experts leads a team of renowned international researchers and professionals who provide detailed technical reviews and the latest solutions to a variety of important problems. They share hard-won insight into the practical implementation and integration issues involved in developing autonomous and open robotic systems, along with in-depth examples, current and future applications, and extensive illustrations.

    For anyone involved in researching, designing, or deploying autonomous robotic systems, Autonomous Mobile Robots is the perfect resource.
