Mobile Robotics presents the different tools and methods that enable the design of mobile robots; a discipline booming with the emergence of flying drones, underwater mine-detector robots, robot sailboats and robot vacuum cleaners.
This book presents the different tools and methods that enable the design of mobile robots. These generally autonomous systems are supervised by a human operator and are able to move in a more or less known environment.
Illustrated with simulations, exercises and examples, this book describes the fundamentals of modeling robots, developing the concepts of actuators, sensors, control and guidance. Three-dimensional simulation tools are also explored, as well as the theoretical basis for the reliable localization of robots within their environment.
1. Three-dimensional Modeling.
2. Feedback Linearization.
3. Model-free Control.
5. Instantaneous Localization.
7. Kalman Filter.
