This text covers all the material needed to understand the
principles behind the AI approach to robotics and to program an
artificially intelligent robot for applications involving sensing,
navigation, planning, and uncertainty. Robin Murphy is extremely
effective at combining theoretical and practical rigor with a light
narrative touch. In the overview, for example, she touches upon
anthropomorphic robots from classic films and science fiction
stories before delving into the nuts and bolts of organizing
intelligence in robots.Following the overview, Murphy contrasts AI
and engineering approaches and discusses what she calls the three
paradigms of AI robotics: hierarchical, reactive, and hybrid
deliberative/reactive. Later chapters explore multiagent scenarios,
navigation and path-planning for mobile robots, and the basics of
computer vision and range sensing. Each chapter includes
objectives, review questions, and exercises. Many chapters contain
one or more case studies showing how the concepts were implemented
on real robots. Murphy, who is well known for her classroom
teaching, conveys the intellectual adventure of mastering complex
theoretical and technical material.An Instructor's Manual including
slides, solutions, sample tests, and programming assignments is
available to qualified professors who are considering using the
book or who are using the book for class use.
