Book Description

This open access book introduces key concepts in robotics in an easy to understand language using an engaging project-based approach. It covers contemporary topics in robotics, providing an accessible entry point to fundamentals in all the major domains. A section is dedicated to introducing programming concepts using Python, which has become a language of choice in robotics and AI.

The book also introduces the reader to the Robot Operating System (ROS), the ubiquitous software and algorithmic framework used by researchers and the industry.

"This book provides the ‘foundation’ for understanding how robots work. It is the accessible introduction that artists and engineers have been waiting for."

  • Modern Robotics: Mechanics, Planning, and Control

    Offers a distinct and unified perspective of the mechanics, planning and control of robots. Ideal for self-learning, or for courses, as it assumes only freshman-level physics, ordinary differential equations, linear algebra and a little bit of computing background.

  • Elements of Robotics (Mordechai Ben-Ari, et al)

    This book bridges the gap between playing with robots in school and studying robotics to prepare for careers in industry and research. Robotic algorithms are presented formally, but using only mathematics known by high-school and first-year college students.

  • Robots and AI (Lili Yan Ing, et al)

    The book explains new approaches on how robots and artificial intelligence affect the world economy by presenting detailed theoretical framework and country-specific as well as firm-product level-specific exercises.

  • Distributed Control of Robotic Networks (Francesco Bullo, et al)

    This self-contained introduction to the distributed control of robotic networks offers a distinctive blend of computer science and control theory. It provides explanations of the basic concepts and main results, as well as numerous examples and exercises.
