Release Date: 1999-03-19
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Insects are extremely successful creatures, thriving in our ever-changing and unpredictable world. One of the factors behind their success is the use of odour to increase their efficiency when searching for food, to help navigate between a source of food and their nest and to enable them to find a mate. Mobile robots would have their capabilities greatly enhanced if they could make use of similar techniques. This important book describes current research aimed at giving robots the ability to generate, detect and discriminate between odours, together with the control algorithms using such sensory information. Contents:Chemical Sensing in NatureExamples of Biological ChemotaxisOdour Sensing TechnologyOdour DiscriminationAirflow and Movement of OdourBroadcast Chemical SignalsChemical Markings as SignalsCoding Information into TrailsHeat as a Short-Lived MarkerFuture Prospects for Robotic Odour Sensing Readership: Graduate students and researchers in robotics, mechatronics and artificial intelligence. Keywords:Odour Sensing;Chemical Sensing;Electronic Noses;Chemical Trails;Robot Pheromones;Chemical Source Location;Robot Sensing;Biomimetic Robots;Intelligent RobotsReviews: “The book is useful for roboticists and might be of interest as an illustration on how to tackle an example of applied multidisciplinary research.” Mathematics Abstracts
