He completed his Vordiplom intermediate examination in computer science, economics, and medicine at the University of Hildesheim in At the University of Bonn , he completed a Diplom first degree in and a Ph. In Thrun spent a sabbatical year at Stanford University. From —, Thrun was a full professor of computer science and electrical engineering at Stanford. On January 23, , he co-founded an online private educational organization, Udacity. In , he started the University of Bonn's Rhino project together with his doctoral thesis advisor Armin B. In , the follow-up robot "Minerva" was installed in the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History in Washington, DC, where it guided tens of thousands of visitors during a two-week deployment period. In , Thrun helped develop mine mapping robots in a project with his colleagues William L. His former graduate student Michael Montemerlo, who was co-advised by William L. Whittaker , led the software development for this robot. At Google, he co-developed Google Street View. Thrun's best known contributions to robotics are on the theoretical end. He contributed to the area of probabilistic robotics, a field that marries statistics and robotics.

A 'muust have' textbook! Gaurav S. Most helpful customer reviews 37 of 37 people found the following review helpful. Superb By Ravi Mohan The authors took 6 years to write this book. And it shows. This is a mindblowing tour through the algorithms used at the cutting edge of Robotics. What is good 1. Every algorithm has descriptive text, mathematical derivations AND pseudo code. More importantly it all meshes into a cohesive whole.

There is a consistent practical focus with algorithms being explained in the context of solving real world problems in robotics.

There is a comprehensive errata page on the book's website. Last but not least, the tone of the writing is very engaging. The reader is not talked down to. It is almost as if the authors were in your study carefully guiding you through an intellectual wonderland.

The bad. Hmmm i can't think of anything. It is great book. The authors do cover elementary probability theory etc in the initial chapters, and they do a good job given the space constraints.

But in my opinion if you have absolutely no experience in probability theory or calculus, you should probably learn from other books and then tackle this one.

This is, after all, a graduate level text. Delivers even more than it promises By Joshua Davies This is really an amazing book - it more than fulfilled my expectations.

It starts from the very basics of probability theory and clearly derives Kalman Filtering, Particle Filtering, Probabilistic Motion and Probabilistic Perception in the first 6 chapters. From there it moves on to talk about Localization and Mapping completely separately which I appreciated, since the two topics are far easier to comprehend independently in chapters 7 and 8 and then finally introduces SLAM the main topic of the book in chapter 9.

From there it goes on to discuss various SLAM algorithms and implementations, and finally rounds out with planning and control that is, the practical application of SLAM algorithms. I can't imagine a more well-researched academic work. Every point is backed up with examples and illustrations, and every algorithm is derived rigorously. Even better, the mathematical derivations are set apart from the main text so that a more "casual" reader can skip over the derivations and still get some benefit from the text and believe me, the math parts of this book are very involved!

The authors assume a working knowledge of trigonometry, calculus and linear algebra although you could likely make some sense of the book even if you're rusty in any of these areas. However, since the book is about probability, you'll probably need some background in probability theory to get any value from this text.

Chapter 2 contains a refresher on probability theory, but I doubt it would be enough to decipher the later chapters if you had no background in the subject. I found myself having to go back and look up the details of Bayes Rule and multivariate conditional probability more than once. Especially considering the open-ended nature of the exercises, it's almost not worth attempting them or even reading them , since you'll never know if you got the right answer, or were even on the right track.

There's no "student supplement" at least not as I write this , so the exercises are fairly pointless. However, that aside, this is one of the best academic books I've read in a very long time. After reading this book carefully I actually had to read it twice to get it all to sink in , I'm actually zipping through the academic papers, and understanding everything I read.
