About the book
The development and usage of robotics is influencing all dimensions of our modern life. There is a demand to have robots that can move, interact, act in real dynamic and unconstrained environments and in real-time. Besides, there is a demand to have robots that can interact smoothly and safely with human beings' actions and movement within the same environments. In addition, such robots should have the capabilities to acquire and represent knowledge, deal with uncertainty at different operational levels, learn, reason, adapt, have the autonomy to make intelligent decisions and act upon them with the ability to manage complex motor coordination. Furthermore, they should have the ability to learn from interaction, anticipate outcomes of actions, acquire experiences and use them as required for future actions. The term Cognitive Robotics is the interdisciplinary term used to describe the robots that merge all of these features and capabilities into their own hardware and software architectures.
This book aims to provide up-to-date research development in the field of Cognitive Robotics, such as (but not limited to): Cognition, Robot Autonomy, Intelligent Behaviors, Systems Intelligence, Adaptive Robotics, Nature and Bioinspiration, Cognition Architecture, Cognitive Modeling and Knowledge Representation, Machine Learning Techniques, Deep Learning Techniques, Human-Robot Interaction, Evolutional Robotics, etc.
