About the book

This book will be a collection of state-of-the-art chapters in methods and numerous applications of robot motion planning. Motion planning is a fundamental key-function for all navigational modalities of rolling, walking, flying and swimming robots, as well as trajectory generation and control of robotic arms. Motion, path and tasks planning are correlated tasks that are critical for industrial, manufacture and service robotic missions. Those tasks depend on their cyber-physical planning interactions of the robot's mechanisms, actuators motion, and end-effector tasks.

This book will collect different approaches to robot motion planning in artificial intelligence algorithms and dynamic modeling and control methods. The intelligent robotics approach includes traditional AI methods grouped in Graph search, Machine Learning and Reinforcement Learning algorithms. Moreover, the methods based on dynamic modeling and control include geometric and algebraic models, differential ordinary/partial equations, Kalman filters for state estimation and sensory-motor feedback approaches. Likewise, this book will provide the point of views developed for path generation and motion tracking in both, deterministic and probabilistic perspectives.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sara Debeuc

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
