  • Parallel Robotsby J.P. Merlet

    Springer 2006; US$ 149.00

    Parallel robots are closed-loop mechanisms presenting good performances in terms of accuracy, velocity, rigidity and ability to manipulate large loads. This book presents a synthesis of the results on the possible mechanical architectures, analysis and synthesis of this type of mechanism. It is intended for students, researchers and engineers. more...

  • Multi-Arm Cooperating Robotsby M.D. Zivanovic; M.K. Vukobratovic

    Springer 2006; US$ 199.00

    Expresses the deformation work by internal forces as a function of the absolute coordinates of contacts of mobile elastic structure. This book demonstrates the consistent procedure of mathematical modeling and synthesis of nominal coordinated motion, as well as control of the cooperative system. more...

  • PIC Robotics: A Beginner's Guide to Robotics Projects Using the PIC Microby John Iovine

    McGraw-Hill Education 2004; US$ 26.00

    Here's everything the robotics hobbyist needs to harness the power of the PICMicro MCU! In this heavily-illustrated resource, author John Iovine provides plans and complete parts lists for 11 easy-to-build robots each with a PICMicro "brain.? The expertly written coverage of the PIC Basic Computer makes programming a snap -- and lots of fun. more...

  • Scientific Methods in Mobile Roboticsby Ulrich Nehmzow

    Springer 2006; US$ 209.00

    Aims at a theoretical understanding of the operation of autonomous mobile robots. This book presents the research on the application of chaos theory, parametric and non-parametric statistics and dynamical systems theory in this field. Practical examples and case studies show how robot behaviour can be logged, analysed, interpreted and modelled. more...

  • Climbing and Walking Robotsby M. O. Tokhi; G.S. Virk; M.A. Hossain

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 379.00

    The interest in climbing and walking robots (CLAWAR) has been intensified, and different solutions for complex applications have been anticipated by means of significant progress in this area of robotics. Containing 131 technical articles, this book reports the development findings and results presented in the CLAWAR 2005 Conference. more...

  • Anatomy of a Robotby Charles Bergren

    McGraw-Hill Education 2003; US$ 32.95

    This work looks under the hood of all robotic projects, stimulating teachers, students, and hobbyists to learn more about the gamut of areas associated with control systems and robotics. It offers a unique presentation in providing both theory and philosophy in a technical yet entertaining way. more...

  • Leonardo's Lost Robotsby Mark Rosheim

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 59.95

    Reinterprets Leonardo da Vinci's mechanical design work, revealing a sophistication that has gone unrecognized by art historians or engineers. This book recovers Leonardo's notes, showing that apparently unconnected fragments scattered in manuscripts are actually cohesive designs for functioning automata. more...

  • Climbing and Walking Robotsby Manuel Armada; Pablo González de Santos

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 339.00

    Interest in climbing and walking robots (CLAWAR) has increased considerably. This book contains the proceedings of the 7th Climbing and Walking Robots 2004 (CLAWAR 2004) Conference, which provides a forum for original contributions from various industrial and emerging research fields, thus presenting a full picture of climbing and walking robots. more...

  • Adaptive Motion of Animals and Machinesby Hiroshi Kimura; Kazuo Tsuchiya; Akio Ishiguro

    Springer 2006; US$ 129.00

    The principles of adaptation to various environments have not yet been clarified. Furthermore, autonomous adaptation remains unsolved and a seriously difficult problem in robotics. Apparently, the adaptation ability shown by animals and that needed by robots in the real world cannot be explained or realized by one single function in a control system... more...

  • The Definitive Guide to Building Java Robotsby Scott Preston

    Springer 2006; US$ 48.99
