Book Description :

With the science of robotics undergoing a major transformation just now, Springer’s new, authoritative handbook on the subject couldn’t have come at a better time. Having broken free from its origins in industry, robotics has been rapidly expanding into the challenging terrain of unstructured environments. Unlike other handbooks that focus on industrial applications, the Springer Handbook of Robotics incorporates these new developments. Just like all Springer Handbooks, it is utterly comprehensive, edited by internationally renowned experts, and replete with contributions from leading researchers from around the world. The handbook is an ideal resource for robotics experts but also for people new to this expanding field.

Book Description :

An exploration of embodied intelligence and its implications points toward a theory of intelligence in general; with case studies of intelligent systems in ubiquitous computing, business and management, human memory, and robotics. How could the body influence our thinking when it seems obvious that the brain controls the body? In How the Body Shapes the Way We Think, Rolf Pfeifer and Josh Bongard demonstrate that thought is not independent of the body but is tightly constrained, and at the same time enabled, by it. They argue that the kinds of thoughts we are capable of have their foundation in our embodiment--in our morphology and the material properties of our bodies. This crucial notion of embodiment underlies fundamental changes in the field of artificial intelligence over the past two decades, and Pfeifer and Bongard use the basic methodology of artificial intelligence--"understanding by building"--to describe their insights. If we understand how to design and build intelligent systems, they reason, we will better understand intelligence in general. In accessible, nontechnical language, and using many examples, they introduce the basic concepts by building on recent developments in robotics, biology, neuroscience, and psychology to outline a possible theory of intelligence. They illustrate applications of such a theory in ubiquitous computing, business and management, and the psychology of human memory. Embodied intelligence, as described by Pfeifer and Bongard, has important implications for our understanding of both natural and artificial intelligence.

Book Description :

Technical Report from the year 2019 in the subject Engineering - Robotics, grade: 9, , language: English, abstract: Robotic agents can be made to learn various tasks through simulating many years of robotic interaction with the environment which cannot be made in case of real robots. With the abundance of a large amount of replay data and the increasing fidelity of simulators to implement complex physical interaction between the robots and the environment, we can make them learn various tasks that would require a lifetime to master. But, the real benefits of such training are only feasible, if it is transferable to the real machines. Although simulations are an effective environment for training agents, as they provide a safe manner to test and train agents, often in robotics, the policies trained in simulation do not transfer well to the real world. This difficulty is compounded by the fact that oftentimes the optimization algorithms based on deep learning exploit simulator flaws to cheat the simulator in order to reap better reward values. Therefore, we would like to apply some commonly used reinforcement learning algorithms to train a simulated agent modelled on the Aldebaran NAO humanoid robot. The problem of transferring the simulated experience to real life is called the reality gap. In order to bridge the reality gap between the simulated and real agents, we employ a Difference model which will learn the difference between the state distributions of the real and simulated agents. The robot is trained on two basic tasks of navigation and bipedal walking. Deep Reinforcement Learning algorithms such as Deep Q-Networks (DQN) and Deep Deterministic Policy Gradients(DDPG) are used to achieve proficiency in these tasks. We then evaluate the performance of the learned policies and transfer them to a real robot using a Difference model based on an addition to the DDPG algorithm.

Book Description :

The 2020's will go down in history for the rise of the robotic workforce. Service robots will be a key helper in many homes. For example, Samsung is developing Ballie, a household/companion robot that is the size of a tennis ball that's loaded with artificial intelligence. It's designed to understand, support and react to the owner's needs. Incredibly, it can connect and control smart devices in the home to the owner's specifications. As for pets, there will be plenty of little robots like Adorable Kiki and Aibo to choose from. Some of them will sit and stay on command. These are some of the many, fascinating household robots that are showcased in my book "New Robots for the 2020's.Health Care RobotsOne of the biggest megatrends in robotics is the use of health care robots which is greatly accelerating because of the COVID-19 pandemic. An example, included in the book, comes from Wuhan, China where a smart field hospital is totally run by health care robots, controlled by medical staff in a safe and remote location. In Singapore, robots are taking temperatures, dispensing hand sanitizers and encouraging social distancing. UV Light Robots are in high demand to deep-cleanse public places of the highly contagious COVID-19 virus. Venues include the hospitality industry, public transportation and much more. With COVID-19 likely to be a global health concern for some time, the demand for health care robots is expected to dramatically rise during this decade.Autonomous Mobile RobotsThe market for autonomous mobile robots is expected to hit $221 billion by 2030, growing from $29 billion in 2019. We showcase the latest including Misty 11 Robot Concierge, Spot Robodog Internet Sensation, Robots that deliver door to door, China's restaurant robots and Italy's very strong robot that can haul a plane. We also delve into the booming global drone business which is expected to be a $120 billion market by 2030.5G Connected RobotsThis decade robotic technology is being revolutionized with the inclusion of 5G systems that make robots more responsive, connected, fast and highly advanced. The 5G connectivity for robots is empowering and will provide any robot, from a $200 personal robot to a $2 million industrial robot with the key capabilities they need: sensing, thinking, acting and communicating. This book is an exciting look at the future of robotics in our personal/ business lives and in global industries during this decade.
