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.

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.
