Description

Product Description

Robotic vision, the combination of robotics and computer vision, involves the application of computer algorithms to data acquired from sensors. The research community has developed a large body of such algorithms but for a newcomer to the field this can be quite daunting. For over 20 years the author has maintained two open-source MATLAB® Toolboxes, one for robotics and one for vision. They provide implementations of many important algorithms and allow users to work with real problems, not just trivial examples. This book makes the fundamental algorithms of robotics, vision and control accessible to all. It weaves together theory, algorithms and examples in a narrative that covers robotics and computer vision separately and together. Using the latest versions of the Toolboxes the author shows how complex problems can be decomposed and solved using just a few simple lines of code. The topics covered are guided by real problems observed by the author over many years as a practitioner of both robotics and computer vision. It is written in an accessible but informative style, easy to read and absorb, and includes over 1000 MATLAB and Simulink® examples and over 400 figures. The book is a real walk through the fundamentals of mobile robots, arm robots. then camera models, image processing, feature extraction and multi-view geometry and finally bringing it all together with an extensive discussion of visual servo systems. This second edition is completely revised, updated and extended with coverage of Lie groups, matrix exponentials and twists; inertial navigation; differential drive robots; lattice planners; pose-graph SLAM and map making; restructured material on arm-robot kinematics and dynamics; series-elastic actuators and operational-space control; Lab color spaces; light field cameras; structured light, bundle adjustment and visual odometry; and photometric visual servoing.

 

“An authoritative book, reaching across fields, thoughtfully conceived and brilliantly accomplished!”

Great textbook with some minor typos
Reviewed in the United States on September 9, 2020
I have enjoyed reading this textbook so far - it is both entertaining and very informative. The only downside I''ve noticed is there have been a couple of minor typos and mistakes. They aren''t major but some have forced me to re-read text because it didn''t make sense.

Libro arrivato in ottime condizioni anche se con qualche giorno di ritardo ( preso con prime ). La copertina del libro è fatta di una plastica flessibile resistente all''acqua. Il libro è in stile enciclopedia con carta non riciclata e ricca di foto a colori, per quanto riguarda il contenuto che alla fine è quello che conta :-) è ottimo anche se in alcuni punti l''autore non si dilunga nella spiegazione dando per scontato la conoscenza di quell''argomento, problema superabile dai MOOC creati dallo stesso autore. Tutto il codice presente fa uso di due tool creati dall''autore e il principale ambiente di sviluppo è MATLAB.

It gives a great overview of robotics and vision control, and where someone needs more in-depth information about a specific topic, the author suggests at the end of the chapter further readings. The cover is not that strongly glued to the book, but that is a neglectable detail, considering the good price.
