Autonomous Vehicle

Edited by Andrzej Zak

Polish Naval Academy

Autonomous vehicles, despite their relatively short history, have already found practical application in many areas of human activity. Such vehicles are usually replacing people in performing tasks that require long operating time and are held in inaccessible or hazardous environments. Nevertheless, autonomous robotics is probably the area that is being developed the most because of the great demand for such devices in different areas of our lives. This book is a collection of experiences shared by scientists from different parts of the world doing researches and daily exploiting autonomous systems. Giving this book in the hands of the reader, we hope that it will be a treasure trove of knowledge and inspiration for further research in the field of autonomous vehicles.
