  • Robust Estimation and Applications in Robotics

    Solving estimation problems is a fundamental component of numerous robotics applications. Prominent examples involve pose estimation, point cloud alignment, and object tracking. Algorithms for solving these estimation problems need to cope with new challenges due to an increased use of potentially poor low-cost sensors, and an ever growing deployment of robotic algorithms in consumer products, which operate in potentially unknown environments. These algorithms need to be capable of being robust against strong nonlinearities, high uncertainty levels, and numerous outliers. However, particularly in robotics, the Gaussian assumption is prevalent in solutions to multivariate parameter estimation problems without providing the desired level of robustness. Robust Estimation and Applications in Robotics sets out to address the aforementioned challenges by providing an introduction to robust estimation with a particular focus on robotics. It starts by providing a concise overview of the theor of M-estimation. M-estimators share many of the convenient properties of least-squares estimators, and at the same time are much more robust to deviations from the Gaussian model assumption. It goes on to present several example applications where M-Estimation is used to increase robustness against nonlinearities and outliers. Robust Estimation and Applications in Robotics is an ideal introduction to robust statistics that only requires preliminary knowledge of probability theory. It also includes examples of robotics applications where robust statistical tools make a difference.

  • Rehabilitation Robotics

    Robotic rehabilitation devices have become increasingly important and popular in clinical and rehabilitation environments to facilitate prolonged duration of training, increase the number of repetitions of movements, improve patient safety, decrease the strain on therapists, and eventually, to improve the therapeutic outcome. Novel assistive technologies are becoming available as wearable devices that allow transferring the therapeutic training into home and work environments or assist the patient in daily life activities. Rehabilitation Robotics summarizes the rationale for robot-assisted therapy and presents the technological steps in the evolution of the design and development of lower and upper extremity rehabilitation robots. After presenting the basic mechanisms of natural and artificial movement restoration, and the rationale for robot-aided movement therapy, it outlines several design criteria that are relevant for the development of effective and safe rehabilitation robots. R habilitation Robotics also includes a short overview of existing clinical trials that have been performed showing that the application of rehabilitation devices is at least as effective as the application of conventional therapies. It concludes with the finding that further clinical studies are required to find predictors for the success of a robot-aided treatment. Rehabilitation Robotics is an ideal primer for anyone with a research or professional interest in robotic devices that provide technical support to the impaired human motor system.

  • A Survey on Policy Search for Robotics

    Policy search is a subfield of Reinforcement Learning (RL) that focuses on finding good parameters for a given policy parameterization. It is well suited tor robotics as it can cope with high-dimensional state and action spaces, which is one of the main challenges in robot learning. A Survey on Policy Search for Robotics reviews recent successes of both model-free and model- based policy search in robot learning. Model-free policy search is a general approach to learn policies based on sampled trajectories. This text classifies model-free methods based on their policy evaluation, policy update, and exploration strategies, and presents a unified view of existing algorithms. Learning a policy is often easier than learning an accurate forward model, and, hence, model-free methods are more frequently used in practice. However, for each sampled trajectory, it is necessary to interact with the robot, which can be time consuming and challenging in practice. Model-based policy search addresses this problem by first learning a simulator of the robot's dynamics from data. Subsequently, the simulator generates trajectories that are used for policy learning. For both model-free and model-based policy search methods, A Survey on Policy Search for Robotics reviews their respective properties and their applicability to robotic systems. It is an invaluable reference for anyone working in the area.

  • Micro-Scale Mobile Robotics

    The field of microrobotics has seen tremendous advances in recent years. The principles governing the design of such sub-millimeter scale robots rely on an understanding of micro-scale physics, fabrication, and novel control strategies. Micro-Scale Mobile Robotics provides a tutorial on the relevant physical phenomena governing the operation and design of microrobots, as well as a survey of existing approaches to microrobot design and control. It also provides a detailed practical overview of actuation and control methods that are commonly used to remotely power these designs, as well as a discussion of possible future research directions. Potential high-impact applications of untethered microrobots such as minimally invasive diagnosis and treatment inside the human body, biological studies or bioengineering, microfluidics, desktop micro-manufacturing, and mobile sensor networks for environmental and health monitoring are also discussed. Micro-Scale Mobile Robotics is an ideal referen e for those designing future microrobot technologies. While the review is not intended to be completely comprehensive in every area, it does expose the reader to the novel approaches used thus far for microrobot motion, manipulation, and other tasks. The rapid pace of development in the field is exciting, and this text concludes with a look forward at some of the challenges that remain.

  • Vision for Robotics

    Robot vision refers to the capability of a robot to visually perceive the environment and use this information to execute different tasks. Visual feedback has been used extensively for robot navigation and obstacle avoidance. In recent years, there have also been examples that include interaction with people and manipulation of objects. Vision in Robotics reviews aspects of robot vision from its early beginnings to the most recent research. It focuses primarily on some of the work that goes beyond the use of artificial landmarks and fiducial markers for the purpose of implementing vision-based control in robots. It discusses various application areas, both from the systems perspective and individual problems such as object tracking and recognition. Vision in Robotics is an ideal and current reference for researchers and professionals working in the fields of machine vision, image processing, and pattern recognition. Its extensive bibliography serves as an invaluable guide to current r search.

  • A Review of Point Cloud Registration Algorithms for Mobile Robotics

    This monograph addresses the problem of geometric registration and the classical Iterative Closest Point (ICP) algorithm. Though commonly used in several research fields, the focus here is on mobile robotics in which point clouds need to be registered. Even with this narrowed focus, the problem is still complex and multiple-faceted. A lot has been published on the topic, and, up until now, it has lacked a general comparison methodology. This is understandable given the diversity of applications, characteristics of the sensors, motion capabilities of the robotic platform and characteristics of the environments, but it hinders the selection process of an appropriate instance of the algorithm. This review tackles this challenge by three means: (1) a wide literature review with a historical perspective, (2) the elaboration of a theoretical descriptive framework of geometric registration grounded in the literature review, and (3) the analysis of practical use cases covering a wide diversit of mobile robotics applications. The end result provides the reader with a set of guidelines for the choice of geometric registration configuration.

  • Energy in Robotics

    Energy and energy exchange govern interactions in the physical world. By explicitly considering the energy and power in a robotic system, many control and design problems become easier or more insightful than in a purely signal- based view. Energy in Robotics presents a holistic, energy-based view of robotic systems. It examines the relevance of such energy considerations to robotics; starting from the fundamental aspects and proceeding to look at their practical application to robotic systems. Using the theory of Port- Hamiltonian Systems as a fundamental basis, it provides examples pertaining to energy measurement, passivity and safety. Control by interconnection covers the shaping and directing of energy inside controller algorithms, to achieve desired behaviour in a power-consistent manner. This idea of control over the energy ?ow is extended to the physical domain. In their mathematical description and analysis, the boundary between controller and robot disappears and everything is an interconnected system, driven by energy exchange between its parts.

  • Soft-Material Robotics

    The last decade has witnessed an increasing interest in the more active use of soft materials in robotic systems. Having a soft body like the ones in biological systems can potentially provide a robot with superior capabilities. For example, soft body can help the robots to adaptively navigate through small openings, softness can prevent injuries in human-robot interaction, while deformable body can also store and release energy, which may lead to energy effciency in locomotion tasks. By building robotic systems with soft materials, we can realize systems that are safer, cheaper, and more adaptable than the level that conventional rigid-material robots can achieve. Soft- Material Robotics introduces the fundamental aspects of this vibrant research topic from history, modelling, control, and system integration. This content sets it apart from previous review efforts that have focused on presenting individual case studies.

  • Quantum Robotics:A Primer on Current Science and Future Perspectives

It also discusses the new technological potential that quantum approaches may unlock for sensing and control, especially for exploring and manipulating quantum-scale environments. Finally, the work surveys the state of the art in current implementations, along with their benefits and limitations, and provides a roadmap for the future.
