Teleoperation and Robotics in Space aims to provide the principal technical, design and operation issues associated with space robotics. This volume comprises of 17 chapters which are divided into five parts; an introduction, Human-machine interface, Planning and perception, Dynamics and control, and Telerobot system design and applications.

Subjects addressed include: "Economics of Automation in space: implications of automated versus manned operations", "Supervised autonomy for space'telerobotics", "Automatics planning in robotic applications", the "Stability and control of robotic space manipulators" and "Space station robotics task validation and training".

This book is well written and presents the information in a clear and understandable fashion. The two introductory chapters enable the overall context of the subject to be established and allows those who are new to the subject to benefit from it. The book addresses a range of topics which are suitable for engineers, scientists, managers, policy makers, students and many more who are interested in the subject.
