Sensory Systems for Robotic Applications
Robots have come a long way thanks to advances in sensing and computer vision technologies and can be found today in healthcare, medicine and industry. Researchers have been looking at providing them with senses such as the ability to see, smell, hear and perceive touch in order to mimic and interact with humans and their surrounding environments.
Topics covered in this edited book include various types of sensors used in robotics, sensing schemes (e-skin, tactile skin, e-nose, neuromorphic vision and touch), sensing technologies and their applications including healthcare, prosthetics, robotics and wearables.
This book will appeal to researchers, scientists, engineers, and graduate and advanced students working in robotics, sensor technologies and electronics, and their applications in robotics, haptics, prosthetics, wearable and interactive systems, cognitive engineering, neuro-engineering, computational neuroscience, medicine and healthcare technologies.
