Format: Hardcover
I read a lot of text books, papers and other references on Robots. I am always very carefull to research before I buy, and most books I get are at least interesting if not actually usefull. Sensors for Mobile Robots is both. It covers almost every type of sensor imaginable, and it does it very well. It includes both the Theory, Example and a vast wealth of helpful hints. In its limited size it would have been impossible to do more. This book should be in everyone's library that deals with robots, or even sensors in the real world.

You can tell when someone has lived that which they write.

There is much more to this book than 'just sensors'. It treats complex situations with simplicity and depth. The author describes how you might decide upon a certain technique and then how to use the appropriate sensor or from the other angle, which sensor would work best and the unexpected accompanying pieces to ensure it, for example, his novel use of a guitar string.

Some may call this book a 'bible' of sorts. As a reader of technical books, to me, this book is a very satisfying read. An elegant coverage, well thought out, complete and orderly while not bloated and padantic. I cannot say that about too many books, technical or non.

This book could gets the three bears award!

This book includes descriptions of an amazing variety of sensors. I had never even imagined some of these sensing devices. I used two of the sensing techniques for a class project and they got quite a bit of attention from others in the class because the sensors I chose were so unorthodox. You may think you have seen it all but you haven't unless you own this book!
