This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the key concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. The book discusses the accessibility of various sensory systems and a free-to-use global positioning system alongside with the availability of estimation and prediction methods, and new methods for environment mapping. It describes the emergence of mechanical systems such as omni-wheeled mobile robots and aerial quadrotors, which opens up new possibilities for in-person delivery and novel transportation opportunities. The book explains new energy sources and energy consumption reduction methods. Much technological effort has been applied to cooperative swarms. The book also explains the coordination of multiple agents. It is widely agreed that technical problems such as landing and taking off in different terrains in the aerial case, and stability issues in the planar case, should be handled individually by every agent.
