EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Safe Robot Navigation Among Moving and Steady Obstacles is the first book to focus on reactive navigation algorithms in unknown dynamic environments with moving and steady obstacles. The first three chapters provide introduction and background on sliding mode control theory, sensor models, and vehicle kinematics. Chapter 4 deals with the problem of optimal navigation in the presence of obstacles. Chapter 5 discusses the problem of reactively navigating. In Chapter 6, border patrolling algorithms are applied to a more general problem of reactively navigating. A method for guidance of a Dubins-like mobile robot is presented in Chapter 7. Chapter 8 introduces and studies a simple biologically-inspired strategy for navigation a Dubins-car. Chapter 9 deals with a hard scenario where the environment of operation is cluttered with obstacles that may undergo arbitrary motions, including rotations and deformations. Chapter 10 presents a novel reactive algorithm for collision free navigation of a nonholonomic robot in unknown complex dynamic environments with moving obstacles. Chapter 11 introduces and examines a novel purely reactive algorithm to navigate a planar mobile robot in densely cluttered environments with unpredictably moving and deforming obstacles. Chapter 12 considers a multiple robot scenario. For the Control and Automation Engineer, this book offers accessible and precise development of important mathematical models and results. All the presented results have mathematically rigorous proofs. On the other hand, the Engineer in Industry can benefit by the experiments with real robots such as Pioneer robots, autonomous wheelchairs and autonomous mobile hospital. First book on collision free reactive robot navigation in unknown dynamic environments Bridges the gap between mathematical model and practical algorithms Presents implementable and computationally efficient algorithms of robot navigation Includes mathematically rigorous proofs of their convergence A detailed review of existing reactive navigation algorithm for obstacle avoidance Describes fundamentals of sliding mode control

Decentralized Coverage Control Problems For Mobile Robotic Sensor And Actuator Networks

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book introduces various coverage control problems for mobile sensor networks including barrier, sweep and blanket. Unlike many existing algorithms, all of the robotic sensor and actuator motion algorithms developed in the book are fully decentralized or distributed, computationally efficient, easily implementable in engineering practice and based only on information on the closest neighbours of each mobile sensor and actuator and local information about the environment. Moreover, the mobile robotic sensors have no prior information about the environment in which they operation. These various types of coverage problems have never been covered before by a single book in a systematic way. Another topic of this book is the study of mobile robotic sensor and actuator networks. Many modern engineering applications include the use of sensor and actuator networks to provide efficient and effective monitoring and control of industrial and environmental processes. Such mobile sensor and actuator networks are able to achieve improved performance and efficient monitoring together with reduction in power consumption and production cost.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

In this book, we have set up a unified analytical framework for various human-robot systems, which involve peer-peer interactions (either space-sharing or time-sharing) or hierarchical interactions. A methodology in designing the robot behavior through control, planning, decision and learning is proposed. In particular, the following topics are discussed in-depth: safety during human-robot interactions, efficiency in real-time robot motion planning, imitation of human behaviors from demonstration, dexterity of robots to adapt to different environments and tasks, cooperation among robots and humans with conflict resolution. These methods are applied in various scenarios, such as human-robot collaborative assembly, robot skill learning from human demonstration, interaction between autonomous and human-driven vehicles, etc. Key Features: Proposes a unified framework to model and analyze human-robot interactions under different modes of interactions. Systematically discusses the control, decision and learning algorithms to enable robots to interact safely with humans in a variety of applications. Presents numerous experimental studies with both industrial collaborative robot arms and autonomous vehicles.

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book describes the latest research advances, innovations, and visions in the field of robotics as presented by leading researchers, engineers, and practitioners from around the world at the 14th International Conference on Intelligent Autonomous Systems (IAS-14), held in Shanghai, China in July 2016. The contributions amply demonstrate that robots, machines and systems are rapidly achieving intelligence and autonomy, attaining more and more capabilities such as mobility and manipulation, sensing and perception, reasoning, and decision-making. They cover a wide range of research results and applications, and particular attention is paid to the emerging role of autonomous robots and intelligent systems in industrial production, which reflects their maturity and robustness. The contributions were selected by means of a rigorous peer-review process and highlight many exciting and visionary ideas that will further galvanize the research community and spur novel research directions. The series of biennial IAS conferences, which began in 1986, represents a premiere event in the field of robotics.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

An International Conference on Robotics and Factories of the Future was held on December 4-7, 1984 in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA. The development of technology and the status as it stands today is highly multidisciplinary and complex in nature. It has added new dimensions and challenges in the development of factories of the future. Thus it calls upon an integrated approach of technological, economic and sociological impacts of robots and computers in factories of the future. Sessions in this conference included: Planning of Automation, Future Trends & Management, Integration of CAD/CAM & Robot Cell, Robots Applications, Manipulation I, Controls I, Manipulation II, Computer Vision and Sensors, Robot Cell and Mobile Robot, Controls II, Artificial Intelligence, Advanced Applications of Robots, Industrial Panel, CAD/CAM and Flexible Manufacturing, Robotics and CAD/CAM Education I, Social and Economic Implications, Robotics and CAD/CAM Education II, and Industry and User Interaction. 142 papers were presented during the conference and participants came from 18 countries. The plenary session and keynote speakers were: J. M. Kelly, IBM Quality Institute, Southbury, Connecticut; M. E. Merchant, Metcut Research, Cincinnati, Ohio; Stellio Demark, ASEA Robotics, Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Stanley J. Polcyn, Unimation Inc., Danbury, Connecticut; Carl Ruoff,Jet Propulsion Lab, Pasadena, California; Joseph Tulkoff, Lockheed Georgia Company, Marietta, Georgia; N. M.
