Designing Robot Behavior in Human-Robot Interactions

1st Edition

Changliu Liu, Te Tang, Hsien-Chung Lin, Masayoshi Tomizuka
September 25, 2019

In this book, we have set up a unified analytical framework for various human-robot systems, which involve peer-peer interactions (either space-sharing or time-sharing) or hierarchical interactions. A methodology in designing the robot behavior through control, planning, decision and learning is...

AI and SWARM: Evolutionary Approach to Emergent Intelligence

1st Edition

Hitoshi Iba
September 16, 2019

This book provides theoretical and practical knowledge on AI and swarm intelligence. It provides a methodology for EA (evolutionary algorithm)-based approach for complex adaptive systems with the integration of several meta-heuristics, e.g., ACO (Ant Colony Optimization), ABC (Artificial Bee Colony...

Biomechanical Principles on Force Generation and Control of Skeletal Muscle and their Applications in Robotic Exoskeleton

1st Edition

Yuehong Yin
September 16, 2019

This book systematically introduces the bionic nature of force sensing and control, the biomechanical principle on mechanism of force generation and control of skeletal muscle, and related applications in robotic exoskeleton. The book focuses on three main aspects: muscle force...

Human-Robot Interaction: Safety, Standardization, and Benchmarking

1st Edition

Paolo Barattini, Federico Vicentini, Gurvinder Singh Virk, Tamas Haidegger
April 29, 2019

Human-Robot Interaction: Safety, Standardization, and Benchmarking provides a comprehensive introduction to the new scenarios emerging where humans and robots interact in various environments and applications on a daily basis. The focus is on the current status and foreseeable implications of robot...

Virtual Humans: Today and Tomorrow

1st Edition

David Burden, Maggi Savin-Baden
February 04, 2019

Virtual Humans provides a much-needed definition of what constitutes a ‘virtual human’ and places virtual humans within the wider context of Artificial Intelligence development. It explores the technical approaches to creating a virtual human, as well as emergent issues such as embodiment, identity...

Multi-View Geometry Based Visual Perception and Control of Robotic Systems

1st Edition

Jian Chen, Bingxi Jia, Kaixiang Zhang
August 01, 2018

This book describes visual perception and control methods for robotic systems that need to interact with the environment. Multiple view geometry is utilized to extract low-dimensional geometric information from abundant and high-dimensional image information, making it convenient to develop general...

Behavior Trees in Robotics and AI: An Introduction

1st Edition

Michele Colledanchise, Petter Ögren
July 24, 2018

Behavior Trees (BTs) provide a way to structure the behavior of an artificial agent such as a robot or a non-player character in a computer game. Traditional design methods, such as finite state machines, are known to produce brittle behaviors when complexity increases, making it very hard to add...

Artificial Intelligence and the Two Singularities

1st Edition

Calum Chace
April 26, 2018

The science of AI was born a little over 60 years ago, but for most of that time its achievements were modest. In 2012 it experienced a big bang, when a branch of statistics called Machine Learning (and a sub-branch called Deep Learning) was applied to it. Now machines have surpassed humans in...

Intelligent Autonomy of UAVs: Advanced Missions and Future Use

1st Edition

Yasmina Bestaoui Sebbane
March 16, 2018

Intelligent Autonomy of UAVs: Advanced Missions and Future Use provides an approach to the formulation of the fundamental task typical to any mission and provides guidelines of how this task can be solved by different generic robotic problems. As such, this book aims to provide a systems...

1st Edition

Volker Ziemann
February 26, 2018

A Hands-On Course in Sensors using the Arduino and Raspberry Pi is the first book to give a practical and wide-ranging account of how to interface sensors and actuators with micro-controllers, Raspberry Pi and other control systems. The author describes the progression of raw signals through...

Autonomous Mobile Robots in Unknown Outdoor Environments

1st Edition

Xiaorui Zhu, Youngshik Kim, Mark A. Minor, Chunxin Qiu
December 22, 2017

Mobile robots have been increasingly applied in many different scenarios, such as space exploration and search and rescue, where the robots are required to travel over uneven terrain while outdoors. This book provides a new framework and the related algorithms for designing autonomous mobile...
