Frontiers in Evolutionary Robotics
by Hitoshi Iba
Publisher: InTech 2008
Number of pages: 596
This book presented techniques and experimental results which have been pursued for the purpose of evolutionary robotics. Evolutionary robotics is a new method for the automatic creation of autonomous robots. When executing tasks by autonomous robots, we can make the robot learn what to do so as to complete the task from interactions with its environment, but not manually pre-program for all situations.

The book on advanced research on multi-robot subsystems, naturally motivated by the challenges posed by robot soccer, but certainly applicable to other domains: reasoning, multi-criteria decision-making, behavior and team coordination, etc.
by Mordechai Ben-Ari and Francesco Mondada - Springer
This book bridges the gap between playing with robots and studying robotics at upper undergraduate levels to prepare for careers in industry and research. Robotic algorithms are presented formally, but using only calculus, matrices and probability.

The authors cover a large range of the problems encountered in the motion planning of mobile robots including obstacle avoidance methods, navigation and localization techniques, environmental modelling or map building methods, etc.

The book provides answers by developing a general principle - homeokinesis, the dynamical symbiosis between brain, body and environment -that is shown to drive robots to self-determined, individual development in a playful and embodiment-related way.
