Editorial Reviews

Review

This book is well suited for graduate courses in robotics, where it can
provide a synthesis of the solutions and rapidly introduce problems for
research.

(G. Gini Computing Reviews)

This text provides a clear and systematic development of the essentials
of mobile robotics. The second edition adds up-to-date material to a book that has
already been adopted in robotics classes worldwide. With this guide in hand,
students and readers will swiftly navigate the field toward more advanced
systems.

(Raja Chatila, LAAS-CNRS, France)

I am a phd student in robot perception and I was really amazed by this book. At the beginning I thought it was just an introduction to robotics but its much more than that. Many algorithms are explained in a very appealing and simple way. Especially I liked all the perception, localization, and planning chapters. Definitely an excellent book that I strongly recommend to both experts and non.

I'm in my third year of studies as an undergraduate CS major, and I just read this book over Christmas break. (I admit there is a difference between reading a book and being able to apply all the knowledge contained therein, but I think I did reach a fairly good grasp of the material.)

The most useful parts to me were 1) a derivation of various robot kinematic models, 2) the variety of probabilistic localization models, and 3) the descriptors of basic computer vision algorithms. The book doesn't hold your hand through the *implementation* of anything, which can make it harder to visualize at times. It does provide enough detail, though, that I could implement (with some effort) most, if not all, of the algorithms and techniques in the book. I really liked that this book provided a survey of topics, rather than going into great detail on one particular issue. There are a large number of references (books, websites, and papers) for each topic in the book, so the interested reader can pursue their favorite component of the book further.

I felt the path planning and robot software architecture sections in Ch 6 were a little "rushed" and the vision section seemed long when compared with the rest of the book, but overall the authors spent a suitable amount of time discussing each topic.

Just as the title says, this book introduces the reader to mobile robotics and the aspects that need to be taken into account when designing mobile robots, and it does that in a good way. To be precise, the discussions in the book are quite easy to follow, contributing to a pleasant reading experience; moreover, many useful references are supplementing the topics covered.

That being said, "Introduction to Autonomous Mobile Robots" is probably not the only text that one would consult when working on mobile robotics, as the authors don't go into details for some of the topics, but it is definitely a good start. Give it a try.

A serious robot motion book for the student roboticist. This is a text book for an online class and college level classes. Better brush up on linear algebra before reading this book. Not a problem for someone in college with a fresh background in math. The subject of robot motion is covered at a nice level, and other reviewers do a better job than myself in covering the book.
