About this book series

The Springer Tracts in Autonomous Systems (STRAUS) publish the state-of-the-art and advances in unmanned systems exhibiting attributes of autonomy, intelligence, autonomous functionality and resilience. The objective is to provide the foundations of the overall cycle from design and modeling of unmanned systems, to control and implementation exhibiting autonomy and self-organization amidst extreme disturbances, also functioning in uncertain and dynamic environments. 
The STRAUS series is the first of its kind in that it provides ‘metrics’ to evaluate autonomy and autonomous functionality and resilience, directly applicable to real complex engineering systems. 
Books to be published are suitable for the scientist and engineer, practitioner and end-user. They are also suitable for graduate students and researchers who wish to conduct research in the topical areas covered by the series. Within the scope of the series are monographs, lecture notes, selected contributions from specialized conferences and workshops, as well as selected PhD theses.
