Introduction to Autonomous Robots: Kinematics, Perception, Localization and Planning, 2nd Edition

Book Description

This book introduces concepts in , autonomous robotics to 3rd-4th year students in or a related discipline. The book covers of robot motion, forward and inverse kinematics of robotic arms and simple wheeled platforms, perception, error propagation, localization and simultaneous localization and mapping. The cover picture shows a wind-up toy that is smart enough to not fall off a table just using intelligent mechanism design and illustrate the importance of the mechanism in designing intelligent, autonomous . This book is , open to contributions, and released under a creative common license.
