A beyond human knowledge and reach, robotics is strongly involved in tackling challenges of new emerging multidisciplinary
fields. Together with humans, robots are busy exploring and working on the new generation of ideas and problems whose solution
is otherwise impossible to find. The future is near when robots will sense, smell and touch people and their lives. Behind
this practical aspect of human-robotics, there is a half a century spanned robotics research, which transformed robotics into
a modern science. The Advances in Robotics and Virtual Reality is a compilation of emerging application areas of robotics.
The book covers robotics role in medicine, space exploration and also explains the role of virtual reality as a non-destructive
test bed which constitutes a premise of further advances towards new challenges in robotics. This book, edited by two famous
scientists with the support of an outstanding team of fifteen authors, is a well suited reference for robotics researchers
and scholars from related disciplines such as computer graphics, virtual simulation, surgery, biomechanics and neuroscience.
