This is the web site of the IEEE robotics and automation society; the society is interested in both applied and theoretical issues in robotics and automation. There are details about the activities of the society including back copies of their newsletter and details about forthcoming conferences. It is an easy to use web site and should be of interest to anyone interested in robotics and automation.

www.iee.org/OnComms/pn/mechatro nics/ is also worth a visit for any information on robotics and mechatronics. This is another IEEE branch for promoting the growth and exchange of knowledge in engineering and technology. It contains events and training, a discussion forum, people and contacts and also a useful list of pdf technical articles are available to download. You can also register for free to be a member of this professional network which includes topics such as artificial intelligence, robotics, mechatronics, this enables you to view and contribute to the discussion forums and other member only areas.

This is a large number of links in a list consisting of a compilation of space robotics-related and general purpose robotics-related resources (web sites, ftp sites, gopher sites, newsgroups, etc.) available on the internet. This is a useful place for everything from background reading about space related robotics to other more fun sections including a robot theatre. It is usefully sorted into categories including NASA telerobotics program resources, companies and institutes, “frequently asked questions” lists, hobby groups and clubs and a few others.
