This volume presents the proceedings of the fourth annual Robotics: Science and Systemsconference, held in 2008 at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. The paperspresented cover a range of topics, including computer vision, mapping, terrain identification,distributed systems, localization, manipulation, collision avoidance, multibody dynamics, obstacledetection, microrobotic systems, pursuit-evasion, grasping and manipulation, tracking, spatialkinematics, machine learning, and sensor networks as well as such applications as autonomous drivingand design of manipulators for use in functional-MRI.
