Accessing Multimedia Contents

Multimedia contents are an integral part of the Second Edition of the Springer Handbook of Robotics. Seven part videos and more than 700 chapter videos are presented on this website. 69 chapters contain video icons like this one:




Each icon indicates a video ID that can be used to access individual videos in various simple and intuitive ways.

Using the Multimedia App
We recommend using the multimedia app for smartphone and tablet PCs. You can install the app on iOS and Android devices using this link. The app allows you to simply scan the pages of the book and automatically play all videos on your device while reading the book.

Using this Website
All chapter videos and part videos can be accessed directly from the website of the multimedia extension. Just enter a video ID in the search field in the top right corner of this website. You may also use this website to browse through chapter and part videos.

Using PDF Files
If you read an electronic copy of the Handbook, each video icon contains a hyper link. Just click on the link to watch the corresponding video.

Using QR Codes
Each chapter starts with a QR code that contains a link to all videos of the chapter. Part videos can be accessed through the QR code at the beginning of each part.
