Hello ROS users community,

I am coordinating with Springer publisher to edit a handbook on Robot
Operating System. 
There are only a few books on ROS http://wiki.ros.org/Books which mainly
represent a brief introduction to ROS and a few basic applications. This
does not translate the huge amount of work being done in the community and I
feel the need to have a complete reference on the topic.

The prospective handbook will cover ROS from foundations and basics to
advanced research works from both academia and industry. Tutorials and
research papers will both be sought. The book should cover several robotics
areas including but not limited to robot navigation, UAVs, arm manipulation,
multi-robot communication protocols, Web and mobile interfaces using ROS,
integration of new robotic platform to ROS, computer vision applications,
development of service robots using ROS, development of new libraries and
packages for ROS, etc. Every book chapter should be accompanied with a
working code to be put later in a common repository for the readers.

To express your interest to the handbook and your intention of a chapter
proposal, I would like to invite you fill in the following form
w/viewform> . The proposed chapters are just  considered as an initial
expression of interest and will be included in the handbook proposal. It
does not mean any kind of commitment for the author at this stage. An
official call for chapters with instructions and deadline will be announced

Thank you and look forward to receive your feedback
