Synopsis

This book is part of the Springer MOOC & BOOK project, providing both a MOOC - offered through Federica Web Learning - and a Springer reference book based on the online course, combining the quality of a scientific essay with the communicative power of an online educational product. It provides a state-of-the-art overview of various aspects of the rapidly developing field of robotics, which is vigorously engaged in the growing challenges of emerging new domains.Interacting, exploring and working with humans, the new generation of robots will increasingly touch people and their lives. The book is strictly linked to the MOOC, and includes numerous examples and exercises in addition to those offered in the MOOC. Moreover, it features multimedia content, such as videos and augmented reality, which can be accessed via PC, tablet or any other mobile device. Students who buy the print book can easily access this content through the Springer Multimedia App, optimized for cell phones and tablets. Readers simply scan the image with their cell phone or tablet and they are taken directly to the video, figure, photo, table, PowerPoint slide, etc. Moreover, this content can be shared via other apps, email, messengers, and more.The book, edited by an outstanding, internationally respected expert in the field, includes valuable contributions from more than 30 authors, making this innovative project an authoritative reference resource for senior graduate and PhD level students, as well as for robotics researchers and scientists from related disciplines.This book focuses on Impact.
