ABOUT THIS BOOK
Sensory systems comprising of various sensing modalities are fundamental to robotics - they provide information about the state of the environment and of the robotic system, which forms the basis for control, decision-making, and interaction. This book covers robotic sensory hardware, related electronics and system issues. Topics to be covered include sensors used in robotics, various sensing schemes, sensing technologies and system issues (wiring complexity, conformal electronics, power consumption etc.).
