Cyberbotics' Robot Curriculum
by Olivier Michel, Fabien Rohrer, Nicolas Heiniger
Publisher: Wikibooks 2010
Number of pages: 121
This book is geared towards students, teachers, hobbyists and researchers interested in intelligent robots. It will help you understanding what robots are, what they can do for you, and most interestingly how to program them. It includes two parts: a short theoretical part and a longer practical part.

A mathematical formulation of the kinematics, dynamics, and control of robot manipulators. It uses mathematical tools that emphasizes the geometry of robot motion and allows a large class of problems to be analyzed within a unified framework.
by Pedro Lima - InTech
The book on advanced research on multi-robot subsystems, naturally motivated by the challenges posed by robot soccer, but certainly applicable to other domains: reasoning, multi-criteria decision-making, behavior and team coordination, etc.

This book introduces concepts in mobile, autonomous robotics to students in Computer Science. The book covers principles of robot motion, forward and inverse kinematics of robotic arms and simple wheeled platforms, perception, error propagation, etc.
by Jonas Buchli - InTech
The book covers many aspects of the research in mobile robotics. It deals with different aspects of the control problem, especially also under uncertainty and faults. Mechanical design issues are discussed along with new sensor and actuator concepts.
