Autonomous robots are robots which can perform desired tasks in unstructured environments without continuous human guidance. Many kinds of robots have some degree of autonomy. Different robots can be autonomous in different ways. A high degree of autonomy is particularly desirable in fields such as space exploration, where communication delays and interruptions are unavoidable. Some modern factory robots are "autonomous" within the strict confines of their direct environment. The exact orientation and position of the next object of work and (in the more advanced factories) even the type of object and the required task must be determined. This can vary unpredictably (at least from the robot's point of view). One important area of robotics research is to enable the robot to cope with its environment whether this be on land, underwater, in the air, underground, or in space. This book presents the latest research from around the globe.

Autonomous systems are one of the most important trends for the next generation of control systems. This book is the first to transfer autonomous systems concepts and intelligent agents theory into the control and operation environment of power systems. The focus of this book is to design a future control system architecture for electrical power systems, which copes with the changed requirements concerning complexity and flexibility and includes several applications for power systems. This book draws the whole circle from the theoretical and IT-concept of autonomous systems for power system control over the required knowledge-based methods and their capabilities to concrete applications within this field.

One of the great challenges in flexible production and supply chains is the availability of necessary information at any time and place. Autonomous logistics processes can bring about fast and flexible adaptations to change. This book identifies autonomous logistics processes and details how they differ from conventionally managed processes. Coverage also describes the changes that autonomy will cause in order processing.

This volume contains the proceedings of the tenth International Conference on Intelligent Autonomous Systems (IAS-10) in Baden Baden, Germany. The IAS conference brings together leading researchers interested in all aspects of autonomy and adaptivity of artificial systems. One of the driving forces of this conference is the observation that intelligence and autonomy is best studied and demonstrated using mobile robots acting autonomously in real-world environments and under challenging conditions.The papers contained in the final program of the conference cover a wide spectrum of research in autonomous intelligent systems including agent technology, walking robots, motion planning, robot control, multi-robot systems, navigation, perception, applications, learning and adaptation, and humanoid robots, just to mention some of them. The organization of IAS-10 aims to provide the reader with new ideas and to exchange knowledge in relation to the research of autonomous systems. Previous IAS proceedings are available through IOS Press as well.
