Robot Brains: Circuits and Systems for Conscious Machines by Pentti O. Haikonen

By Pentti O. Haikonen

Haikonen envisions self sufficient robots that understand and comprehend the area without delay, performing in it in a average human-like manner with no the necessity of courses and numerical illustration of data. through constructing higher-level cognitive features during the energy of man-made associative neuron architectures, the writer methods the problems of computer consciousness.

Robot Brains expertly outlines an entire process method of cognitive machines, providing sensible layout guidance for the production of non-numeric self reliant artistic machines. It information subject matters resembling part components and awareness rules, in order that varied items might be carried out in or software program. Real-world examples for designers and researchers are supplied, together with circuit and structures examples that few books in this subject provide.

Human-Like Biomechanics: A Unified Mathematical Approach to by Dr. Vladimir G. Ivancevic, Tijana T. Ivancevic (auth.)

By Dr. Vladimir G. Ivancevic, Tijana T. Ivancevic (auth.)

Human-Like Biomechanics is a finished advent into sleek geometrical the way to be used as a unified examine process in it seems that separate and quickly growing to be fields: mathematical biomechanics and humanoid robotics.

The e-book comprises six Chapters and an Appendix. the 1st bankruptcy is an creation, giving a short evaluate of mathematical strategies for use within the textual content. the second one bankruptcy develops geometrical foundation of human-like biomechanics, whereas the 3rd bankruptcy develops its mechanical foundation, regularly from generalized Lagrangian and Hamiltonian point of view. The fourth bankruptcy develops topology of human-like biomechanics, whereas the 5th bankruptcy reports comparable nonlinear keep watch over options. The 6th bankruptcy develops covariant biophysics of electro-muscular stimulation. The Appendix involves elements: classical muscular mechanics and glossy direction essential tools, that are either used often mainly textual content. the complete booklet relies at the authors’ personal learn papers in human-like biomechanics.

Robotics, Vision and Control: Fundamental Algorithms in by Peter Corke

By Peter Corke

The perform of robotics and laptop imaginative and prescient either contain the applying of computational algorithms to information. Over the rather fresh historical past of the fields of robotics and machine imaginative and prescient a truly huge physique of algorithms has been constructed. even if this physique of information is whatever of a barrier for anyone getting into the sphere, or maybe trying to see in the event that they are looking to input the sphere — what's the correct set of rules for a selected problem?, and importantly, How am i able to test it out with out spending days coding and debugging it from the unique examine papers? the writer has maintained open-source MATLAB Toolboxes for greater than 10 years: one for robotics and one for imaginative and prescient. the main energy of the Toolboxes supply a suite of instruments that permit the person to paintings with actual difficulties, no longer trivial examples. For the coed the e-book makes the algorithms available, the Toolbox code could be learn to achieve realizing, and the examples illustrate the way it can be utilized —instant gratification in exactly a few traces of MATLAB code. The code is usually the start line for brand spanking new paintings, for researchers or scholars, via writing courses in accordance with Toolbox services, or enhancing the Toolbox code itself. the aim of this ebook is to extend at the instructional fabric supplied with the  toolboxes, upload many extra examples, and to weave this right into a narrative that covers robotics and desktop imaginative and prescient individually and jointly. the writer indicates how advanced difficulties should be decomposed and solved utilizing quite a few easy traces of code, and expectantly to encourage up and coming researchers. the subjects lined are guided by means of the genuine difficulties saw over a long time as a practitioner of either robotics and laptop imaginative and prescient. it truly is written in a gentle yet informative variety, one can read  and take in, and contains a lot of Matlab examples and figures. The e-book is a true stroll in the course of the basics of robotic kinematics, dynamics and joint point keep an eye on, then digital camera types, photo processing, characteristic extraction and epipolar geometry, and produce all of it jointly in a visual servo approach. extra fabric is supplied at http://www.petercorke.com/RVC
