Household Service Robotics is a collection of the latest technological advances in household service robotics in five main areas: robot systems, manipulation, navigation, object recognition, and human-robot interaction. The book enables readers to understand development s and apply them to their own working areas, including: Robotic technologies for assisted living and elderly care Domestic cleaning automation Household surveillance Guiding systems for public spaces Service robotics is a highly multidisciplinary field, requiring a holistic approach. This handbook provides insights to the disciplines involved in the field as well as advanced methods and techniques that enable the scale-up of theory to actual systems. It includes coverage of functionalities such as vision systems, location control, and HCI, which are important in domestic settings. Provides a single source collection of the latest development in domestic robotic systems and control Covers vision systems, location control, and HCI, important in domestic settings Focuses on algorithms for object recognition, manipulation, human-robot interaction, and navigation for household roboticsFirst, many existing systems increase the usera#39;s navigation-related physical load, because they require that the user wear ... e.g., the C-5 Laser Cane  and the Guide-Cane ; require that the user effectively abandon his/her conventional navigation aid, ...  developed RHINO, a close sibling of MINERVA, which was deployed as an interactive tour guide in the Deutsches Museum in Bonn, Germany.
