Personhood and Social Robotics
An exponentially growing industry, human robot interaction (HRI) research has drawn predominantly upon psychologists' descriptions of mechanisms of face-to-face dyadic interactions. This book considers how social robotics is beginning unwittingly to confront an impasse that has been a perennial dilemma for psychology, associated with the historical science vs. art' debate. Raya Jones examines these paradigmatic tensions, and, in tandem, considers ways in which the technology-centred discourse both reflects and impacts upon understanding our relational nature. Chapters in the book explore not only how the technology-centred discourse constructs machines as us, but also how humans feature in this discourse. Focusing on how the social interaction is conceptualised when the human-robot interaction is discussed, this book addresses issues such as the long-term impact on persons and society, authenticity of relationships, and challenges to notions of personhood. By leaving aside terminological issues, Jones attempts to transcend ritual of pitching theories against each other in order to comprehensively analyse terms such as subjectivity, self and personhood and their fluid interplay in the world that we inhabit. Personhood and Social Robotics will be a key text for postgraduate students, researchers and scholars interested in the connection between technology and human psychology, including psychologists, science and technology studies scholars, media studies scholars and humanists. The book will also be of interest to roboticists and HRI researchers, as well as those studying or working in areas of artificial intelligence and interactive technologies more generally.

ROS Robotics By Example
Bring life to your robot using ROS robotic applications About This Book: This book will help you boost your knowledge of ROS and give you advanced practical experience you can apply to your ROS robot platforms; This is the only book that offers you step-by-step instructions to solidify your ROS understanding and gain experience using ROS tools; From eminent authors, this book offers you a plethora of fun-filled examples to make your own quadcopter, turtlebot, and two-armed robots Who This Book Is For. If you are a robotics developer, whether a hobbyist, researchers or professional, and are interested in learning about ROS through a hands-on approach, then this book is for you. You are encouraged to have a working knowledge of GNU/Linux systems and Python. What You Will Learn: Get to know the fundamentals of ROS and apply its concepts to real robot examples; Control a mobile robot to navigate autonomously in an environment; Model your robot designs using URDF and Xacro, and operate them in a ROS Gazebo simulation; Control a 7 degree-of-freedom robot arm for visual servoing; Fly a quadcopter to autonomous waypoints; Gain working knowledge of ROS tools such as Gazebo, rviz, rqt, and Move-It; Control robots with mobile devices and controller boards In Detail. The visionaries who created ROS developed a framework for robotics centered on the commonality of robotic systems and exploited this commonality in ROS to expedite the development of future robotic systems. From the fundamental concepts to advanced practical experience, this book will provide you with an incremental knowledge of the ROS framework, the backbone of the robotics evolution. ROS standardizes many layers of robotics functionality from low-level device drivers to process control to message passing to software package management. This book provides step-by-step examples of mobile, armed, and flying robots, describing the ROS implementation as the basic model for other robots of these types. By controlling these robots, whether in simulation or in reality, you will use ROS to drive, move, and fly robots using ROS control. Style and approach. This is an easy-to-follow guide with hands-on examples of ROS robots, both real and in simulation.

Robotics in STEM Education
This book describes recent approaches in advancing STEM education with the use of robotics, innovative methods in integrating robotics in school subjects, engaging and stimulating students with robotics in classroom-based and out-of-school activities, and new ways of using robotics as an educational tool to provide diverse learning experiences. It addresses issues and challenges in generating enthusiasm among students and revamping curricula to provide application focused and hands-on approaches in learning . The book also provides effective strategies and emerging trends in using robotics, designing learning activities and how robotics impacts the students' interests and achievements in STEM related subjects. The frontiers of education are progressing very rapidly. This volume brought together a collection of projects and ideas  which help us keep track of where the frontiers are moving. This book ticks lots of contemporary boxes: STEM, robotics, coding, and computational thinking among them.  Most educators interested in the STEM phenomena will find many ideas in this book which challenge, provide evidence and suggest solutions related to both pedagogy and content. Regular reference to 21st Century skills, achieved through active collaborative learning in authentic contexts, ensures the enduring usefulness of this volume.

Field and Service Robotics
This bookcontains the proceedings of the 10th FSR, (Field and Service Robotics) which isthe leading single-track conference on applications of robotics in challengingenvironments. The 10 th FSR was held in Toronto, Canada from 23-26June 2015.  The book contains 42full-length, peer-reviewed papers organized into a variety of topics:  Aquatic, Vision, Planetary, Aerial,Underground, and Systems. The goal ofthe book and the conference is to report and encourage the development andexperimental evaluation of field and service robots, and to generate a vibrantexchange and discussion in the community. Field robots are non-factory robots, typically mobile, that operate incomplex and dynamic environments:  on theground (Earth or other planets), under the ground, underwater, in the air or inspace.  Service robots are those thatwork closely with humans to help them with their lives.  The first FSR was held in Canberra,Australia, in 1997.  Since that firstmeeting, FSR has been held roughly every two years, cycling through Asia,Americas, Europe.
