The book will also prove useful to general readers who wish to understand and fabricate simple working models of robots. This book adopts a do-it-yourself approach, starting with very simple projects and slowly leading to more complex items. It includes discussions on real-time embedded systems and provides step-by-step instructions for design and construction of different types of simple robots. The book highlights the need for accurate scheduling in real-time systems and indicates the related solution-techniques through assembly language programming. It contains discussions on importance of data structures in real-time scheduling (Chapter 7) and interfacing issues of sensors such as SONAR, infrared, LDR, and tactile sensors. The book provides complete fabrication blue-prints of several robot examples, including line-follower robot, maze-solving robot, obstruction-detecting robot, shadow-activated robot, learning robot, and humanoid robot.The book uses simple and lucid language for easy understanding of the concepts involved. A large number of illustrations (in colour where required) have been incorporated to enhance understanding of relevant technical details. All circuits shown in the book have been tested. Review exercises, including objective-type questions have been provided at the end of every chapter to test the studentsa understanding of the topics discussed.

Embedded and ubiquitous computing is an exciting new paradigm that p- vides computing and communication services all the time, everywhere. Now we can attach computing and communication devices to human bodies to mo- tor our health, embed computing chips into brains to cure memory losses, or make smart fabrics so they can change colors or generate heat. All these new devices are created to the bene?ts or convenience of human lives. We need c- ativity as well as the advance of technology. This emergence is an outcome of researchand technologicaladvances in embedded software, embedded hardware, pervasivecomputing andcommunications, wireless networks, mobilecomputing, distributed computing and agent technologies, etc. The EUC 2006 conference provided a forum for engineers and scientists in academia, industry, and government to address challenges and to present and discuss their ideas, results, work in progress, and experience. The Technical Program Committee of EUC 2006 was led by the TPC Chair, Edwin Shan, and 13 TPC Vice Chairs. A strong international Technical Program Committee was then formed to review, evaluate the submissions, and select the papers to be present

The market demands for skills, knowledge and personalities have positioned robotics as an important field in both engineering and science. To meet these challenging - mands, robotics has already seen its success in automating many industrial tasks in factories. And, a new era will come for us to see a greater success of robotics in n- industrial environments. In anticipating a wider deployment of intelligent and auto- mous robots for tasks such as manufacturing, eldercare, homecare, edutainment, search and rescue, de-mining, surveillance, exploration, and security missions, it is necessary for us to push the frontier of robotics into a new dimension, in which motion and intelligence play equally important roles. After the success of the inaugural conference, the purpose of the Second Inter- tional Conference on Intelligent Robotics and Applications was to provide a venue where researchers, scientists, engineers and practitioners throughout the world could come together to present and discuss the latest achievement, future challenges and exciting applications of intelligent and autonomous robots. In particular, the emphasis of this year’s conference was on “robot intelligence for achieving digital manufact- ing and intelligent automations. ” This volume of Springer’s Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence and Lecture Notes in Computer Science contains accepted papers presented at ICIRA 2009, held in Singapore, December 16–18, 2009. On the basis of the reviews and recommendations by the international Program Committee members, we decided to accept 128 papers having technical novelty, out of 173 submissions received from different parts of the world.

This volume contains the accepted papers presented during the International Conference on Research and Education in Robotics – EUROBOT Conference 2009, held in La Fert ́ e-Bernard, France, May 21–23, 2009. Today, robots are indispensable tools for ?exible, automated manufacturing in many areas of industry as well as for the execution of sophisticated or d- gerous tasks in the nuclear industry, in medicine and in space technology, and last but not least, they are being increasingly used in everyday life. To further encourage researchin this area, the EUROBOT Conferences have been set up. They aim to gather researchersand developersfromacademic ?elds and industries worldwide to explore the state of the art. This conference is - companiedbythe EUROBOTContestFinals,aninternationalamateur robotics contest open to teams of young people. During the ?nals in 2009, teams from 25 countries came together not only to compete, but also to exchange knowledge and ideas and to learn from each other. In addition to the paper and poster presentations, there were two invited talks: – Raja Chatila, Director of the LAAS – CNRS, Toulouse, France whose talk was about “Cognitive Robots” – V ́ eronigue Raoul, EUROBOT Association, France whose talk was about “EUROBOT” Organizing a conference is a task that requires the collaboration of many p- ple. We personally would like to warmly thank all members of the EUROBOT Conference2009programcommittee; without their help and dedicationit would not have been possible to produce these proceedings.

Mobile robotics has until now focused on issues like design of controllers and robot hardware. It is now ready to embrace theoretical methods from dynamical systems theory, statistics and system identification to produce a formalized approach based on quantitative analyses and computer models of the interaction between robot, task and environment. This book is a step towards a theoretical understanding of the operation of autonomous mobile robots. It presents cutting-edge research on the application of chaos theory, parametric and non-parametric statistics and dynamical systems theory in this field. Practical examples and case studies show how robot behaviour can be logged, analysed, interpreted and modelled, aiding design of controllers, analysis of agent behaviour and verification of results. As the first book to apply advanced scientific methods to mobile robots it will interest researchers, lecturers and post-graduate students in robotics, artificial intelligence and cognitive science.
