Editorial Reviews

The 64 papers report on widely applicable methods and technologies for developing machines that move with little or no human attention, and specific applications for such tasks operating in hostile environments, routine guarding and monitoring, searching for land mines, plastering walls and ceilings, space exploration, and perhaps even transporting the kids to school and mom to work. They consider vision and non- vision perception, route and motion planning, walking and climbing machines, localization and navigation, motion control, and multi-robot, and human-machine systems.
