Swarm Robotics: From Biology to Robotics
by Ester Martinez Martin
Publisher: InTech 2010
Number of pages: 110
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. This book is focused on real practical applications by analyzing how individual robotic agents should behave in a robotic swarm in order to achieve a specific goal such as target localization or path planning.

The book covers many aspects of the research in mobile robotics. It deals with different aspects of the control problem, especially also under uncertainty and faults. Mechanical design issues are discussed along with new sensor and actuator concepts.

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.

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 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.
