Covers the computational methods involved in designing the locomotive, sensing and reasoning systems that enable a robot to perform tasks that involve motion and behavior.The vehicle lacks sensors to detect and avoid obstacles and is thus unsuitable for domestic lawns, although it appears to be ... the largest potential application for mobile robotics is in providing aids for the disabled or for the elderly (eldercare). ... For example,  describes a system that requires the installation of magnetic marker lanes for navigation, and  ... The issue of operator-chair interaction is addressed by  in which the operator provides instructions to the chair viaanbsp;...
