The ?eld of robotics keeps to ?ourish and strengthen. In universal with normal scienti?c research, new rules and implementations emerge fairly spontaneously and those are mentioned, used, discarded or subsumed at c- ferences, within the reference journals, in addition to during the web. After a bit extra adulthood has been obtained via the hot techniques, then archival booklet as a scienti?c or engineering monograph may possibly happen. The target of the Springer Tracts in complicated Robotics is to put up new advancements and advances within the ?elds of robotics study – swiftly and informally yet with a top quality. it really is was hoping that potential authors will welcome the chance to submit a dependent presentation of a few of the rising robotics methodologies and applied sciences. The edited quantity via Antonio Bicchi, Henrik Christensen and Domenico Prattichizzo is the result of the second one version of a workshop together backed via the IEEE keep an eye on platforms Society and the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society. extensively, the former quantity was once released within the Springer Lecture Notes on keep watch over and data Sciences. The authors are recognized as prime students the world over. A n- ber of tough keep watch over difficulties at the leading edge of today’s learn in robotics and automation are coated, with specific emphasis on imaginative and prescient, sensory-feedback regulate, human-centered robotics, manipulation, making plans, ?exible and cooperative robots, meeting systems.
