Nikolaus Correll - Author
This book introduces concepts in mobile/ autonomous robotics to 3rd-4th year students in Computer Science or a related discipline. The book covers principles 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 systems. This book is open source/ open to contributions/ and released under a creative common license.
