Abstract

During the last decade, many researchers have dedicated their efforts to construct revolutionary machines and to provide them with some kind of artificial intelligence to perform some of the most disgusting, risky or monotonous tasks historically assigned to human beings. Among those machines, mobile robots are undoubtedly in the cutting-edge of the current research directions. An initial classification of mobile robots can be immediately considered: on the one hand, mobile robots oriented to human-made indoor environments; on the other hand, mobile robots oriented to unstructured outdoor environments, which could include flying-oriented robots, space-oriented robots and underwater robots.
