    1. This book was recommended as a background reading text for my postgraduate course in mobile robotics and AI (a course aimed at graduates who have no previous knowledge of either). Lots of the basic problems of robotics are introduced and discussed in the book, such as low-level control with effectors and actuators, different control architectures such as subsumption, the problems of planning actions, having a robot know where it is on a map, team robotics and so on. They are all explained at the [...]

    2. A very informative and easy to read book. It explores the rapidly advancing world or robotics, explaining what makes a robot 'tick' and how exactly it works.A great introduction to a big chapter of modern technology.

    3. While reading this book, I was taking a class at Northwestern. Through this book, I learned how to program and design robots. However, it was boring.
