  • Type Synthesis of Parallel Mechanismsby Xianwen Kong; Clement M. Gosselin

    Springer 2007; US$ 109.00

    This unique monograph focuses on the systematic type synthesis of parallel mechanisms (PMs), which is a key issue in the creative design of a wide variety of innovative devices based on PMs such as parallel manipulators, parallel kinematic machines (machine tools), motion simulators, haptic devices, micro-manipulators, and nano-manipulators. Type synthesis... more...

  • Towards Affordance-based Robot Cby Erich Rome; Joachim Hertzberg; Georg Dorffner

    Springer 2008; US$ 59.95

    Today??'s mobile robot perception is insufficient for acting goal-directedly in unconstrained, dynamic everyday environments like a home, a factory, or a city. Subject to restrictions in bandwidth, computer power, and computation time, a robot has to react to a wealth of dynamically changing stimuli in such environments, requiring rapid, selective... more...
