Robot Motion Planning and Control
by Jean-Paul Laumond
Publisher: Springer 1998
Robot motion planning encompasses several different disciplines, most notably robotics, computer science, control theory and mathematics. This volume presents an interdisciplinary account of recent developments in the field. Topics covered include: combining geometric algorithms and control techniques to account for the nonholonomic constraints of most mobile robots; the mathematical machinery necessary for understanding nonholonomic systems; applying optimal techniques to compute optimal paths; feedback control for nonholonomic mobile robots; etc.

The book provides answers by developing a general principle - homeokinesis, the dynamical symbiosis between brain, body and environment -that is shown to drive robots to self-determined, individual development in a playful and embodiment-related way.
