Simply The Best Technical Book I have Ever Read. A Customer I read a lot of text books, papers and other references on Robots. I am always very carefull to research before I buy, and most books I get are at least interesting if not actually usefull. Sensors for Mobile Robots is both. It covers almost every type of sensor imaginable, and it does it very well. It includes both the Theory, Example and a vast wealth of helpful hints. In its limited size it would have been impossible to do more. This book should . A Customer said Amazing!. This book includes descriptions of an amazing variety of sensors. I had never even imagined some of these sensing devices. I used two of the sensing techniques for a class project and they got quite a bit of attention from others in the class because the sensors I chose were so unorthodox. You may think you have seen it all but you haven't unless you own this book!. A Customer said so so. Book covers alot of topics related to robotics, but fails to do so at more detailed levels.Good book for general information, but would not recommend it to anyone looking to get any "real" information for implementation.
