About this book

This book makes a consolidated guided tour to the world of sociorobots (social or socialized robots).

Sociorobots and assistive robots provide entertainment, assistance to the handicapped, companionship to the elderly and health care to autistic children and people with dementia. The book provides, in a fluent educational way, all major concepts, architectures and design methodologies. All types of sociorobots are examined, namely walking anthropomorphic, wheeled anthropomorphic, fixed-place anthropomorphic and zoomorphic sociorobots. The book provides an outline of sociorobot intelligent control architectures, robot learning and human robot interaction.

Reviews

“This book represents a source that the robotic community was lacking, at least from a general and nontechnical perspective, in the field of social robots … . this book describes both the foundations and the applications of social robots. … the interested reader or specialist may enlarge their curiosity by checking the references available at the end of each chapter.” (Ramon Gonzalez Sanchez, Computing Reviews, September, 2015)
