During the last decade, many researchers have dedicated their efforts to constructing revolutionary machines and to providing them with forms of artificial intelligence to perform some of the most hazardous, risky or monotonous tasks historically assigned to human beings. Among those machines, mobile robots are undoubtedly at the cutting edge of current research directions. A rough classification of mobile robots can be considered: on the one hand, mobile robots oriented to human-made indoor environments; on the other hand, mobile robots oriented to unstructured outdoor environments, which could include flying oriented robots, space-oriented robots and underwater robots. The most common motion mechanism for surface mobile robots is the wheel-based mechanism, adapted both to flat surfaces, found in human-made environments, and to rough terrain, found in outdoor environments. However, some researchers have reported successful developments with leg-based mobile robots capable of climbing up stairs, although they require further investigation. The research work presented here focuses on wheel-based mobile robots that navigate in human-made indoor environments.
This bookÃ¿was designed as a reference tool for pharmacists involved in the treatment of patients with infections. It is clinically oriented and designed to help students in all medical disciplines, and especially pharmacists and students of pharmacy who need information on choosing the correct drug, dose, and method of administration of an agent to patients with infectious diseases. Nurse practitioners and clinical microbiologists who need to understand the use of anti-infective agents in patients will also find this volume useful.
