[Almost all of us have watched plenty of sci-fi movies that revolve around the same theme: scientists develop a robot that has true consciousness, observes the environment around it and realizes that human beings are an unnecessary part of the equation. Half an hour into the movie and we have an...
[This chapter talks about the elementary concepts of probability and statistics that are needed to better comprehend this book. This appendix covers topics like basic probability, conditional probability, Bayes’ Theorem and various distributions like normal distribution (also called Gaussian...
[In this chapter, we will be covering the basic concepts of matrices, determinants and, eigenvalues and eigenvectors in this chapter. If the reader is familiar with these concepts, then the reader can skip ahead to the next chapter without any loss of continuity.]
[The robotic platform is the physical hardware on which the experiments have been conducted. All algorithms, by definition, should be replicable on any physical machine, irrespective of the individual hardware components. However, all other things being constant, there is no denying that...
[In this chapter, we present the various components of the computer vision algorithms that were used for the various aspects of the project. Initially, the chapter discusses the underlying algorithms of computer vision from a mathematical standpoint. Once this aspect has been completed, the next...
[Whenever a problem seems extremely open ended with a large variety of random variables that have an effect on the process, it is impossible for a human programmer to be able to account for every single case. The number of cases increases dramatically with an additional parameter. In such...
[In this chapter, we discuss the results that were obtained while trying to solve an unknown maze by the iCub using the algorithm discussed in Chap. 6.]
[A simple literature review will reveal a plethora of maze solving algorithms. However, merely executing an algorithm in a sequence of steps is not worthy of present day research, simply because there is nothing to differentiate it from the millions of sequential executions taking place in an...
