  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Concise Encyclopedia of Roboticsby Stan Gibilisco

    McGraw-Hill Education 2002; US$ 21.95

    * The perfect way to keep up with the mountain of new terms and techniques facing today's hobbyist * A clearinghouse of information for hobbyists and students interested in robotics, artificial intelligence, and electronics * 400 definitions--all presented in concise, well-illustrated, non-mathematical style favored by amateur hobbyists *... 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...

  • 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...

  • Anatomy of a Robotby Charles Bergren

    McGraw-Hill Education 2003; US$ 32.95

    Here's a unique "head to toe" examination of all of the major disciplines involved in building robots and control systems--offering both practical theory and philosophy in a technical yet entertaining way. * A true "under the hood" look at the gamut of subjects related to robotics, from mathematics to control systems * Brings a technical topic... more...

  • 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...
