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.

Cognitive Robotics
The kimono-clad android robot that recently made its debut as the new greeter at the entrance of Tokyo's Mitsukoshi department store is just one example of the rapid advancements being made in the field of robotics. Cognitive robotics is an approach to creating artificial intelligence in robots by enabling them to learn from and respond to real-world situations, as opposed to pre-programming the robot with specific responses to every conceivable stimulus. Presenting the contributions of international experts from various disciplines within the field, Cognitive Robotics provides novel material and discusses advanced approaches in the field of intelligent robotics. It explains the various aspects of the topic to provide readers with a solid foundation on the subject. This edited collection presents theoretical research in cognitive robotics. It takes a multidisciplinary approach that considers the artificial intelligence, physical, chemical, philosophical, psychological, social, cultural, and ethical aspects of this rapidly emerging field. The editor is a prominent researcher whose Lovotics research into emotional bonds with robots is widely recognized. Supplying an accessible introduction to cognitive robotics, the book considers computational intelligence for cognitive robotics based on informationally structured space. It examines how people respond to robots and what makes robots psychologically appealing to humans. The book contextualizes concepts in the history of studies on intelligence theories and includes case studies of different types of robots in action. Although ideal for robotics researchers and professionals, this book is also suitable for use as a supporting textbook in advanced robotics courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

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.
