Amalendu Chatterjee
November 25, 2019

In this book, the author outlines a Robust Web Parking, Truck and Transportation Portal (RWPTTP) for integrating parking and transportation services – a revolutionary approach in contrast to incremental change for managing traffic congestion. Autonomous vehicle technology, artificial intelligence,...

Digitalized and Harmonized Industrial Production Systems: The PERFoRM Approach

1st Edition

Armando Walter Colombo, Michael Gepp, José Barata Oliveira, Paulo Leitao, Jose Barbosa, Jeffrey Wermann
November 12, 2019

On the one side, Industrial competitiveness today means shorter product lifecycles, increased product variety, and shorter times to market and customized tangible products and services. To face these challenges, the manufacturing industry is forced to move from traditional management, control,...

Natural Language Understanding and Cognitive Robotics

1st Edition

Masao Yokota
October 24, 2019

In the not so distant future, we can expect a world where humans and robots coexist and interact with each other. For this to occur, we need to understand human traits, such as seeing, hearing, thinking, speaking, etc., and institute these traits in robots. The most essential feature necessary for...

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...

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...
