Full Description
This book presents a unique combination of mobile robots and embedded systems, from introductory to intermediate level. It is structured in three parts, dealing with embedded systems (hardware and software design, actuators, sensors, PID control, multitasking, wireless communication), mobile robot design (driving, balancing, walking, and flying robots), and mobile robot applications (mapping, robot soccer, genetic algorithms, neural networks, behavior-based systems, and simulation). Its third edition has been significantly extended with new chapters on CPUs, robot manipulators and automotive systems, as well as additional material in the chapters on navigation/localization, neural networks and genetic algorithms. This results in a much more complete treatment of the subject area and an even more well-rounded publication that contains up-to-date research results. The book is written as a text for courses in computer science, computer engineering, IT, electronic engineering, and mechatronics, as well as a guide for robot hobbyists and researchers.
