Mobile Robots: Perception and Navigation
by Sascha Kolski
Publisher: InTech 2007
Number of pages: 704
Today robots navigate autonomously in office environments as well as outdoors. They show their ability to beside mechanical and electronic barriers in building mobile platforms, perceiving the environment and deciding on how to act in a given situation are crucial problems. In this book we focused on these two areas of mobile robotics, Perception and Navigation. This book gives a wide overview over different navigation techniques describing both navigation techniques dealing with local and control aspects of navigation as well es those handling global navigation aspects of a single robot and even for a group of robots.

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.
by Nikolaus Correl - Magellan Scientific
This book introduces concepts in mobile, autonomous robotics to students in Computer Science. The book covers principles of robot motion, forward and inverse kinematics of robotic arms and simple wheeled platforms, perception, error propagation, etc.
by Pedro Lima - InTech
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 Xing-Jian Jing - InTech
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.
