About these proceedings


Experts in the field of experimental robotics come together in this book to share the results of their most recent research projects. Both theoretical ideas and advances with practical applications are discussed, In particular, state-of-the-art research in fascinating areas such as underwater environments, civil engineering, space and medicine is focused upon. Research aimed at improving methodologies and techniques in robot control, programming and planning shows the way to improve the use of robots for complex problems. Techniques for human-robot co-operation are also looked at - there are a number of areas in which combining the intelligence and adaptability of humans and the accuracy and reliability of robots can have remarkable results. This book will enable readers to update their knowledge of experimental robotics and find out, particularly, about the research that has been going on over the last two years and the research that is likely to continue in the future.
