Call For Book Chapters
"Advances in Robotics and Virtual Reality"
To be published by Springer “Intelligent Systems Reference Library Series”
Editors: Tauseef Gulrez and Aboul-Ella Hassanien
Deadline for chapter proposal: 29 September, 2010
Scope and Aim of the Book Chapters :This book is an effort to compile the current advances in robotics for manipulation and virtual reality as a non-destructive test-bed, and to stimulate a discussion on the future research directions in these fields. We expect that this book will succeed in invigorating research interests towards the development and applications of robotics and virtual reality for intelligent systems. Robotics may be exploited to assist human beings in number of ways from farming to avionics, bio-medicine, automotive, rehabilitation etc. However the non-destructive nature of virtual reality makes it a prime candidate for the testing of robotic techniques or train humans towards the operation of robots in a safe and danger free environment. The goal of this book “Advances in Robotics and Virtual Reality” is to exchange and stimulate research ideas to realize advancements in robotic and virtual reality systems together. Robotics and Virtual Reality are rapidly growing, interdisciplinary research areas lying at the intersection of computer science, mechatronics, control systems, electrical and mechanical engineering. Technologies, algorithms, system architectures, and applications will be presented and discussed on this book. The call for book chapters will invite authors of the following field to contribute their chapters towards this innovative and challenging book: We encourage participation from a wide range of disciplines including Robotics, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Neuroscience, Cognitive Psychology, Human-Computer Interaction, Mobile Computing and Rehabilitation Robotics.
· Virtual Reality Systems
· Autonomous Navigation
· Brain Remapping Systems
