About these proceedings
The seventh edition of Field and Service Robotics, edited by Andrew Howard, Karl Iagnemma and Alonzo Kelly, offers an eleven chapter collection of a broad range of topics spanning: design, perception and control; tracking and sensing; localization and mapping; multi-robot
cooperation and human-robot interaction; mining, maritime and planetary robotics. The volume's forty-five contributions represent a cross-section of the current state of robotics research from one particular aspect: field and service applications. Pursuing technologies
aimed at realizing robots operating in complex and dynamic environments, as well as robots working closely with humans, is the overarching theme running throughout this collection.
