Description

Copyright ©2015 Zhejiang University Press, Published by Elsevier Inc.

Household Service Robotics is a collection of the latest technological advances in household service robotics in five main areas: robot systems, manipulation, navigation, object recognition, and human-robot interaction. The book enables readers to understand development s and apply them to their own working areas, including:

  • Robotic technologies for assisted living and elderly care
  • Domestic cleaning automation
  • Household surveillance
  • Guiding systems for public spaces

Service robotics is a highly multidisciplinary field, requiring a holistic approach. This handbook provides insights to the disciplines involved in the field as well as advanced methods and techniques that enable the scale-up of theory to actual systems. It includes coverage of functionalities such as vision systems, location control, and HCI, which are important in domestic settings.
