'... a good synthesis of robotics for computer science people, and is a useful tool for approaching the area.' Computing Reviews '... clearly presents the range of topics covered in this multidisciplinary field.' Industrial Robot 'This book is an indispensable tool for any - both pre-university and university - course on mobile robotics. It covers the main topics related to any mobile robotic system, including hardware (locomotion and communication), sensors, navigation, path planning, mapping, and localization.' Ramon Gonzalez Sanchez, University of Almeria
