Re: Subsumption Architecture Article
Joseph Jones' (of Jones and Flynn, "Mobile Robots: Inspiration to
Implementation") new book is
"Robot Programming: A Practical Guide to Behavior Based Robotics"
Joseph L. Jones
McGraw-Hill ISBN 0-07-142778-3
He has a good in-depth discussion of the behavior-based paradigm, as well
as other control methods.
I highly recommend it. I think that this book perhaps fills the
gap that Chris refers to.

sound to it too :).
Regards books for starting out, I always liked Joe Jones' other book,
as it covers in detail all aspects of hardware and systems design,
and also has a nice coverage of programming and also subsumption
techniques in the last 4-5 chapters. Covers it all from the ground up.
Mobile Robots, Inspirations to Implementations.
I'm currently reading Jones' "new" book - mentioned above. It covers
strategies for controlling bots in more detail than the old book, but
is largely past the basics. Most people starting out won't care much
about the 4-5 different ways to set module priorities, etc. The new
book is nice in that Joe says things like, "over the past 15 years,
I've tried this and that and that and that, and found that this one
works best ..." :).
