Robotics and Cybernetics

The library's Robotics and Cybernetics collections include both electronic and print materials. Here, we provide you with a brief overview of useful resources from these ever-evolving, interdisciplinary fields. If you have additional suggestions for expanding the library's holdings in these areas, please let us know.


Frontiers in Robotics and AI

Frontiers in Robotics and AI is a novel academic journal composed of an expanding list of specialty sections, each of which has an independent editorial board of leading experts. Frontiers in Robotics and AI is set to be a comprehensive thematic open-access source of knowledge covering diverse areas across robotics research and technology and artificial intelligence.

Frontiers in Neurorobotics

Frontiers in Neurorobotics is devoted to leading edge research in the science and technology of embodied autonomous neural systems. Neural systems include brain-inspired algorithms (e.g., connectionist networks), computational models of biological neural networks (e.g., artificial spiking neural nets, large-scale simulations of neural microcircuits) and actual biological systems (e.g., in vivo and in vitro neural nets).

Reference resources

Springer Handbook of Robotics

The field of robotics has been rapidly expanding into the challenging terrain of unstructured environments. Unlike other handbooks that focus on industrial applications, the Springer Handbook of Robotics incorporates these new developments. Just like all Springer Handbooks, it is utterly comprehensive, edited by internationally renowned experts, and replete with contributions from leading researchers from around the world. The handbook is an ideal resource for robotics experts but also for people new to this expanding field.

Handbook of Industrial Robotics

120 leading experts from twelve countries have participated in creating this Second Edition of the Handbook of Industrial Robotics. Of its 66 chapters, 33 are new, covering important new topics in the theory, design, control, and applications of robotics. Other key features include a larger glossary of robotics terminology with over 800 terms. With contributions from the most prominent names in robotics worldwide, the Handbook remains the essential resource on all aspects of this complex subject.

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. As machines grow ever more intelligent, they're emerging not just as powerful tools, but close companions. These TED Talks offer both whizzy demos and serious ideas on our evolving relationship with robots.


DeepMind is a machine learning system that uses algorithms based on deep neural networks and reinforcement learning to train on massive datasets to be able to predict outcomes. In March 2016, DeepMind's AlphaGo program beat world champion in 4 out of 5 games of Go, a huge victory in AI that came much earlier than many experts believed possible.
