Part of the International Series on Microprocessor-Based and Intelligent Systems Engineering book series (ISCA, volume 18)


Our main interest is the identification of engineering methods for building intelligent machines for real -industrial type- applications. These machines are capable of operation in non-controlled conditions by means of advanced control capabilities, interacting with uncertain environments and performing complex work in collaboration with humans.
