About this Textbook

In this book the author employs a cybernetic view of robot cognition and perception as he examines mobile robot simulations, realizations and experiments, and explains the related mathematical models and algorithms. Chapters are dedicated to map building, path planning, navigation using genetic algorithms, and robot programming packages. Then detailed chapters examine the programs required for robot parameter display, gripper control, sonar reading display, teleoperation, autonomous navigation, image capture and 3D perception.

This book will be useful for students and engineers building intelligent robots, and researchers migrating to this field. The required source code is included in the book or available online.

About the authors

The author has completed his B.E. in Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering and M.E. in Communication System Engineering in 1989 and 1993 respectively from Sambalpur University and awarded with Ph. D. from Jadavpur University, India in 1999. Presently he is the Head of the department of Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering, University College of Engineering, Burla, India. He was the Principal Investigator of the Thrust Area Project Building Cognition of Intelligent Robot of Govt. Of India sponsered by All India Council for Technical Education, New Delhi, India and presently he is supervising a Major Research Project Machine Learning & Perception by Cognitive Methods sponsered by University Grant Commission of India. He has also sucessfuly completed few projects from Govt. and Private Agencies in the area of Machine Intelligence & Soft Computing.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Robotics is mostly about experimentation, and Patnaik certainly offers the reader a book that contains quite a bid of it, with the help of code written in C++ and Java that can be readily downloaded from the publisher’s site … . I consider the book to be well written, addressed to undergraduate students in control sciences and experimental psychology, or some graduate students with a specialty in robotics. For the teacher or researcher, there is the package of aforementioned codes, and the references … ." (Arturo Ortiz-Tapia, Computing Reviews, December, 2007)
