A textbook hasn't been recommended by the instructor. Although the book Probabilistic Robotics by Thrun, Burgard and Fox is mentioned, the scope of the book is too advanced for this class. It's the textbook for one of the instructor's robotics classes at Stanford: CS-226 (Statistical Techniques in Robotics). This book is more suitable for students that have already taken CS271 (Introduction to Artificial Intelligence) and CS373 (Artificial Intelligence for Robotics) and want to go deeper into the subject of statistical methods applied to artificial intelligence and robotics.
