Many papers in the book concern 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, cooperative perception, localization, mobility systems (namely omni-directional wheeled motion, as well as quadruped and biped locomotion, all strongly developed within RoboCup).

Swarm robotics is focused on the coordination of decentralised, self-organised multi-robot systems in order to describe such a collective behaviour as a consequence of local interactions with one another and with their environment.

A mathematical formulation of the kinematics, dynamics, and control of robot manipulators. It uses mathematical tools that emphasizes the geometry of robot motion and allows a large class of problems to be analyzed within a unified framework.

From Bricks to Brains introduces embodied cognitive science, and illustrates its foundational ideas through the construction and observation of LEGO Mindstorms robots. The book places a renewed emphasis on sensing and acting.

In this book we focused on two areas of mobile robotics, Perception and Navigation. This is a wide overview of different navigation techniques dealing with local and control aspects and handling global navigation aspects of robots.
