[robotics-worldwide] [News] Finally an open textbook on robotics for non-roboticists
How to introduce probabilistic localisation to a biologist interested in robotics?
Or to a high school math teacher interested to use robotics as an application example?
Or to any beginner that knows only basic maths?
A new textbook allows answering positively to these questions:
This book bridges the gap between playing with robots in school and studying robotics at the upper undergraduate and graduate levels to prepare for careers in industry and research. Robotic algorithms are presented formally, but using only mathematics known by high-school and first-year college students, such as calculus, matrices and probability. Concepts and algorithms are explained through detailed diagrams and calculations.
