This book presents a unique combination of mobile robots and embedded systems, from introductory to intermediate level. It is structured in three parts, dealing with embedded systems (hardware and software design, actuators, sensors, PID control, multitasking), mobile robot design (driving, balancing, walking, and flying robots), and mobile robot applications (mapping, robot soccer, genetic algorithms, neural networks, behavior-based systems, and simulation). The book is written as a text for courses in computer science, computer engineering, IT, electronic engineering, and mechatronics, as well as a guide for robot hobbyists and researchers.

"This book provides an interesting overview on embedded robotics. ... presents most of the practical aspects related to the design and control of an autonomous robot. ... In the reviewer's opinion, this book is suitable as a textbook for a laboratory class on robotics. ... The book might also be of interest to Ph.D. students ... . is very well organized and it-is-written-in-a-pleasantly concise style. Undergraduate and graduate students and researchers interested in embedded robotics will find it useful and rich in valuable material." (Gianluca Antonelli, SIAM Review, Vol. 49 (3), 2007)
