Experimental Robotics
At the dawn of the new millennium, robotics is undergoing a major transformation in scope and dimension. From a largely dominant industrial focus, robotics is rapidly expanding into the challenges of unstructured environments. Interacting with, assi- ing, serving, and exploring with humans, the emerging robots will increasingly touch people and their lives. The goal of the new series of Springer Tracts in Advanced Robotics (STAR) is to bring, in a timely fashion, the latest advances and developments in robotics on the basis of their significance and quality. It is our hope that the wider dissemination of research developments will stimulate more exchanges and collaborations among the research community and contribute to further advancement of this rapidly growing field. Since its inception, wanted by my STAR Co-Editor Oussama Khatib some twenty years ago, the International Symposium on Experimental Robotics (ISER) was p- lished by Springer. Since the two past editions, ISER has found a more suitable home under STAR, together with other thematic symposia devoted to excellence in robotics research.

Medical Robotics
This book provides a thorough background to the emerging field of medical robotics. It covers the mathematics needed to understand the use of robotic devices in medicine, including but not limited to robot kinematics, hand-eye and robot-world calibration, reconstruction, registration, motion planning, motion prediction, motion correlation, motion replication and motion learning. Additionally, basic methods behind state-of-the art robots like the DaVinci system, the CyberKnife, motorized C-arms and operating microscopes as well as stereotactic frames are presented. The book is a text book for undergraduates in computer science and engineering. The main idea of the book is to motivate the methods in robotics in medical applications rather than industrial applications. The book then follows the standard path for a robotics textbook. It is thus suitable for a first course in robotics for undergraduates. It is the first textbook on medical robotics.

Experimental Robotics
The International Symposium on Experimental Robotics (ISER) is a series of bi-annual meetings which are organized in a rotating fashion around North America, Europe and Asia/Oceania. The goal of ISER is to provide a forum for research in robotics that focuses on novelty of theoretical contributions validated by experimental results. The meetings are conceived to bring together, in a small group setting, researchers from around the world who are in the forefront of experimental robotics research. This unique reference presents the latest advances across the various fields of robotics, with ideas that are not only conceived conceptually but also explored experimentally. It collects robotics contributions on the current developments and new directions in the field of experimental robotics, which are based on the papers presented at the 14th ISER held on June 15-18, 2014 in Marrakech and Essaouira, Morocco. This present fourteenth edition of Experimental Robotics edited by M. Ani Hsieh, Oussama Khatib, and Vijay Kumar offers a collection of a broad range of topics in field and human-ce ntered robotics.

Robotics Research
This volume presents a collection of paperspresented at the 16 th International Symposium of Robotic Research(ISRR). ISRR is the biennial meeting of the International Foundation of RoboticResearch (IFRR) and its 16 th edition took place in Singapore overthe period 16th to 19th December 2013. The ISRR is the longest running seriesof robotics research meetings and dates back to the very earliest days ofrobotics as a research discipline. This 16th ISRR meeting was held in the 30 th anniversary year of the very first meeting which took place in Bretton Woods(New Hampshire, USA) in August 1983., and represents thirty years at theforefront of ideas in robotics research. As for the previous symposia, ISRR 2013followed up on the successful concept of a mixture of invited contributions andopen submissions. 16 of the contributions were invited contributions fromoutstanding researchers selected by the IFRR officers and the programcommittee, and the other contributions were chosen among the open submissionsafter peer review. This selection process resulted in a truly excellenttechnical program which featured some of the very best of robotic research.These papers were presented in a single-track interactive format which enablesreal conversations between speakers and the audience. The symposium contributions contained in thisvolume report on a variety of new robotics research results covering a broadspectrum organized into traditional ISRR categories: control; design;intelligence and learning; manipulation; perception; and planning.
