Review

From the reviews:

"A comprehensive collection of the international accomplishments in the field and presents the very latest research in robotics. … Designed for research and practice, the handbook is edited by the internationally renowned robotics experts … . The coverage of all specialist fields infringing into robotics makes this handbook a reliable desk reference for scientists and engineers in the industry. It also provides basic and more advanced content for scholars from related disciplines such as biomechanics, neurosciences, virtual simulation, animation, surgery, and sensor networks, among others." (Renate Bayaz, EurekAlert!, May, 2008)

"Together with Oussama Khatib, who is a Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University, Siciliano has edited and launched a ‘Handbook of Robotics’ that aims to make the increasingly complex field of robotics more accessible to engineers, doctors, computer scientists and designers. … The handbook was conceived to provide a valuable resource not only for robotics experts, but also for newcomers to this expanding field [such as] engineers, medical doctors, computer scientists, and designers." (Liz Tay, iTnews, June, 2008)

"The ‘Springer Handbook of Robotics’ … basically differs from other handbooks of robotics focusing on industrial applications. It presents a widespread and well-structured coverage from the foundations of robotics, through the consolidated methodologies and technologies, up to the new emerging application areas of robotics. The handbook is an ideal resource for robotics experts but also for people new to this expanding field such as engineers, medical doctors, computer scientists, designers; edited by two internationally renowned experts." (Amazon, Juni, 2008)

"Siciliano and Khatib have assembled a massive and comprehensive tome on robotics, circa 2008. Sections of the book can be read by a diverse audience of undergraduate and graduate students, researchers and even the general public. Spanning any field associated with the subject." (W Boudville, Amazon, Juni, 2008)

"The handbook is a very large and truly encyclopedic work, covering all aspects of robotics, from fundamental principles to applications. The book’s 1,600 pages are subdivided into seven parts … . Each of the seven parts is subdivided into multiple chapters, all written by experts in their fields throughout the world. … This amazing book does an incredible job of balancing theory and practice throughout. It should be an immensely valuable reference for students and practitioners of robotics for many years to come." (George A. Bekey, IEEE Robotics and Automation Magazine, September, 2008)

"The book’s seven parts and 64 chapters concisely review wholesomely ‘traditional’ applications of robotics, as well as address emerging questions of the science and technology of robots. … The volume is rich in indexes and lists. The accompanying DVD- ROM assists readers in perusing the topics. This is a must-have work for anyone with even a remote interest and interaction with this field. … Summing Up: Essential. Graduate students, researchers, faculty, professionals, and informed general readers." (G. Trajkovski, Choice, Vol. 46 (6), February, 2009)

Product Description

Robotics is undergoing a major transformation in scope and dimension. Starting from a predominantly industrial focus, robotics has been rapidly expanding into the challenges of unstructured environments. The "Springer Handbook of Robotics" incorporates these new developments and therefore basically differs from other handbooks of robotics focusing on industrial applications. It presents a widespread and well-structured coverage from the foundations of robotics, through the consolidated methodologies and technologies, up to the new emerging application areas of robotics. The handbook is an ideal resource for robotics experts but also for people new to this expanding field such as engineers, medical doctors, computer scientists, designers; edited by two internationally renowned experts.

Bruno Siciliano is Professor of Control and Robotics at the University of Naples Federico II in Italy, President of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society, and a Fellow of both IEEE and ASME.

Oussama Khatib is Professor at the prestigious Stanford University in the USA, President of the International Foundation of Robotics Research, and a recipient of the Japan Robot Association Award in Research and Development.
