Remote presence will be one of the next big applications of the Internet. Goldberg and Siegwart are pioneers in the technology of letting us be where we are not. In the book, they document the birth of this new reality of which they were prime movers.(Rodney Brooks, Director, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab, MIT)
This is the first excellent book on internet-based controlled robotics, covering its uses in fields such as engineering, space exploration, education, and the arts. The readers will surely get a clear understanding of the features -- manipulation, mobility, time delay control, and human interface -- offered by online robotics.(Toshio Fukuda, Professor, Center for Cooperative Research in Advanced Science and Technology, Nagoya University, Japan)
Robotics is expanding from laboratories and assembly lines into homes, onto highways, and, as this collection convincingly shows, onto the Internet. The editors present a compelling collection of work providing a range of demonstrated examples of Internet robots, a survey of the key scientific issues involved, and a look at the future of this promising field.(Maja J Matarić, Director, Robotics Research Labs, Computer Science Department and Neuroscience Program, University of Southern California)
