Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0521568765, Paperback)This is a superb textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in the field of mobile robotics. With a special emphasis on computation and algorithms, Dudek and Jenkin address a range of strategies for enabling robots to master problems of navigation, pose estimation, and autonomous exploration. While they concentrate on wheeled and legged mobile robots, they also discuss a variety of other propulsion systems with kinematic models developed for many of the more common locomotive strategies. Chapters present algorithms for both visual and nonvisual sensor technologies, including sonar, vision, and laser scanners. In the section on reasoning, the authors thoroughly examine the subject of planning and the issues related to spatial representation. A comprehensive overview of the field, Computational Principles of Mobile Robotics complements its discussion of state-of-the art methods with 139 illustrations of key current and historical technologies.

"This textbook for advanced undergraduates and graduate students emphasizes computation and algorithms for a range of strategies for locomotion, sensing, and reasoning. It concentrates on wheeled and legged mobile robots but also discusses a variety of other propulsion systems. The new edition presents advances in robotics and intelligent machines over the last 10 years, including significant coverage of SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping) and multi-robot systems. It includes additional mathematical background and an extensive list of sample problems. Various mathematical techniques that were assumed in the first edition are now briefly introduced in appendices at the end of the text to make the book more self-contained"--Provided by publisher.
