engaged in the growing challenges of new emerging domains. Interacting, exploring, and
working with humans, the new generation of robots will increasingly touch peoples lives. The
prospect of practical robots among humans follows half a century of robotic developments that
established robotics as a modern scientific discipline.
A
t the pinnacle of these developments, new Springer Handbook of Robotics is making its debut
at the International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), in Pasadena, CA, USA, in
May 2008. The handbook provides a comprehensive collection of the international
accomplishments in the field and presents the very latest research in robotics. From the
foundations to the social and ethical implications of robotics, the handbook sets new standards
for future developments and challenges in this scientific discipline.
Designed for research and practice, the handbook is edited by the internationally renowned
robotics experts Bruno Siciliano and Oussama Khatib. This mammoth task was supported by an

outstanding team of seven part editors on: Robotics foundations; Robot structures; Sensing and

perception; Manipulation and interfaces; Mobile and distributed robotics; Field and service
robotics; and Human-centered and life-like robotics. A total of 165 authors worked on this
authoritative handbook, the result of five years of editing work and more than 10,000 emails to
the editors mailboxes.
Bruno Siciliano is Professor of Control and Robotics and Director of the PRISMA Lab in the
Department of Computer and Systems Engineering at the University of Naples, Italy. His
current research is in force control, visual servoing, dual-arm/hand manipulation, lightweight
flexible arms, human-robot interaction and service robotics. Professor Siciliano is the President
of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS).
Oussama Khatib is Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University, CA, USA. His current
research, which focuses on human-centered robotics, is concerned with human motion
synthesis, humanoid robotics, haptic teleoperation, medical robotics and human-friendly robot
design. Professor Khatib is the President of the International Foundation of Robotics Research
(IFRR).
The coverage of all specialist fields infringing into robotics makes this handbook a reliable desk
reference for scientists and engineers in the industry. It also provides basic and more advanced
content for scholars from related disciplines such as biomechanics, neurosciences, virtual
simulation, animation, surgery, and sensor networks, among others.
###
The Springer Handbook of Robotics is part of a product line founded in 2004 by Springer,
setting standards in physics and technology, and includes the Springer Handbook of
Nanotechnology. These desk references are edited by scientific experts, with the support of
numerous authors from the world of research. All handbooks include a DVD, which can be used
to search the books content. Alongside the print editions, users can also access the books online
