9780262011655: Behavior-Based Robotics (Intelligent Robotics and Autonomous Agents)

Foreword by Michael Arbib

This introduction to the principles, design, and practice of intelligent behavior-based autonomous robotic systems is the first true survey of this robotics field. The author presents the tools and techniques central to the development of this class of systems in a clear and thorough manner. Following a discussion of the relevant biological and psychological models of behavior, he covers the use of knowledge and learning in autonomous robots, behavior-based and hybrid robot architectures, modular perception, robot colonies, and future trends in robot intelligence.

The text throughout refers to actual implemented robots and includes many pictures and descriptions of hardware, making it clear that these are not abstract simulations, but real machines capable of perception, cognition, and action.

About the Author:

Ronald C. Arkin is Professor and Director of the Mobile Robot Laboratory, College of Computing, Georgia Institute of Technology.

Review:

For many years, creating robots with animallike capacities for survival, adaptation, and interaction has been an aim of artificial intelligence research. Recently, new techniques and cheaper technologies have combined to make this a realistic possibility. ronald Arkin presents a comprehensive overview of the entire field of behavior-based robotics, covering work from the early 1950's up to state-of-the-art research. This is a wonderful book. It is well written, richly illustrated, and promises to be of lasting value to students, researchers, and educators.

(Dave Cliff, Artifical Intelligence Laboratory, MIT)

Ronald Arkin's book is an outstanding account of the growing field of behavior-based robotics. Arkin's book is far-reaching, covering subjects ranging from connections between animal and robotic behavior, to hybrid architectures, adaptive behavior, and social behavior. If you want a complete and solid understanding of behavior-based robotics -- this is the right book.

(Marco Dorigo, FNRS Senior Scientist, IRDIA, Universite' Libre de Bruxelles)

I think this is a wonderful book. Arkin has written the definitive book on the theory and application of robots based on biological and psychological models of behavior. I believe it will be an essential book for serious roboticists and an important reference in the field for many years to come.

Hard to put down and necessary to know -- Arkin's book provides acomprehensive intellectual history of robots and a thorough compilation of robotic organizational paradigms from reflexes through social interaction.
