    Science and Systems IV

    Oliver Brock, Jeff Trinkle, and Fabio Ramos

    State-of-the-art robotics research on such topics as manipulation, motion planning, micro-robotics, distributed systems, autonomous navigation, and mapping.

    Robotics: Science and Systems IV spans a wide spectrum of robotics, bringing together researchers working on the foundations of robotics, robotics applications, and analysis of robotics systems. This volume presents the proceedings of the fourth annual Robotics: Science and Systems conference, held in 2008 at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. The papers presented cover a range of topics, including computer vision, mapping, terrain identification, distributed systems, localization, manipulation, collision avoidance, multibody dynamics, obstacle detection, microrobotic systems, pursuit-evasion, grasping and manipulation, tracking, spatial kinematics, machine learning, and sensor networks as well as such applications as autonomous driving and design of manipulators for use in functional-MRI. The conference and its proceedings reflect not only the tremendous growth of robotics as a discipline but also the desire in the robotics community for a flagship event at which the best of the research in the field can be presented.

    Science and Systems III

    Wolfram Burgard, Oliver Brock, and Cyrill Stachniss

    Proceedings from the third annual Robotics: Science and Systems conference, presenting state-of-the-art research on the foundations of robotics, robotics applications, and robotics systems.

    Robotics: Science and Systems III spans a wide spectrum of robotics, bringing together researchers working on the foundations of robotics, robotics applications, and analysis of robotics systems. This volume presents the proceedings of the third annual Robotics: Science and Systems conference, held in June 2007 at Georgia Tech. Papers report state-of-the-art research on topics as diverse as Legged Robotics, Reconfigurable Robots, Biomimetic Robots, Manipulation, Humanoid Robotics, Telerobotics, Haptics, Motion Planning, Collision Avoidance, Robot Vision and Perception, Bayesian Techniques, Machine Learning, Mobile Robots, and Multi-robot systems. This conference reflects not only the tremendous growth of robotics as a discipline but also the desire in the robotics community for a flagship event at which the best of the research in the field can be presented.
