  • Behavior-Based Robotics
    This introduction to the principles, design, and practice of intelligent behavior-based autonomous robotic systems is the first true survey of this robotics field. The author presents the tools and techniques central to the development of this class of systems in a clear and thorough manner. Following a discussion of the relevant biological and psychological models of behavior, he covers the use of knowledge and learning in autonomous robots, behavior-based and hybrid robot architectures, modular perception, robot colonies, and future trends in robot intelligence.

  • Fundamentals of Robotics
    An introduction to the fundamentals of robotics, and to the analysis and control of industrial robots, this text/reference begins by presenting the groundwork in robotic manipulation, the algebraic "arm equation" and its solution, and techniques for planning robot motions. Remaining chapters treat more advanced topics including differential motion and statics, torque- based control, robotic vision, and high-level task planning.

  • Computational Principles of Mobile Robotics
    This is a textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in the field of mobile robotics. With a special emphasis on computation and algorithms, the authors address a range of strategies for enabling robots to perform tasks that involve motion and behavior. The book is divided into three major sections: locomotion, sensing, and reasoning. It concentrates on wheeled and legged mobile robots, but discusses a variety of other propulsion systems. It presents algorithms for both visual and nonvisual sensor technologies, including sonar, vision, and laser scanners. In the section on reasoning, the authors emphasize the problems of navigation, pose estimation, and autonomous exploration.
