Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

More descriptive, less mathematical, and easier to read than other books on the subject of robotics. Provides an introduction to robotics—definition, history, description, applications, maintenance, human safety, artificial intelligence, rationale, the future. Investigates the intelligence of the robot and reviews robot sensors. Focuses on software, but devotes considerable attention to the electronics (computer hardware) of the robot. Designed to meet the needs of those with or without extensive technical background.

Book News Annotation:

A text for use in an introductory robotics course for community and four-year colleges. While the text is aimed at engineering and technology students, it can be understood by all students. Part I introduces the field of robotics, applications, and artificial intelligence. Part II investigates robot sensors, software, and hardware, as well as speech output. Part III deals with simple robotics projects. Appendices offer background in electricity, electronics, and computers. Includes chapter objectives, key terms, summaries, review questions and a glossary.
