Practical Field Robotics: A Systems Approach is a comprehensive reference that takes the reader through the whole process of field robotics, starting from the beginning ‘problem statement’ to the end ‘project demonstration’. It takes a practical approach, showing precisely how to realize a working robotic system, and bridges the gap between existing mathematically based texts and the real work that goes on in research labs all over the world.
Practical Field Robotics: A Systems Approach includes an overview of field robotics and a detailed examination of hardware and software design. It also covers the equipment requirements, conceptual and operational designs, and safety and reliability for multiple field robots, including those used in nuclear service, underground mining and mowing.
Problems are included with additional problems and supporting videos available on a companion website.
