Mobile Intelligent Autonomous Systems

Book description

Going beyond the traditional field of robotics to include other mobile vehicles, this reference and "recipe book" describes important theoretical concepts, techniques, and applications that can be used to build truly mobile intelligent autonomous systems (MIAS). With the infusion of neural networks, fuzzy logic, and genetic algorithm paradigms for MIAS, it blends modeling, sensors, control, estimation, optimization, signal processing, and heuristic methods in MIAS and robotics, and includes examples and applications throughout. Offering a comprehensive view of important topics, it helps readers understand the subject from a system-theoretic and practical point of view.
