  • DK Eyewitness Books: Robotby Roger Bridgman

    DK Publishing 2004; US$ 16.99

    Take a detailed look at the fascinating world of robots - from the earliest single-task machines to the advanced intelligence of robots with feelings. Young readers will be amazed to learn all that robots can do: perform delicate surgical operations, clean city sewers, work as museum tour guides, or even battle each other in combat. Find out how humans... 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Robot Motion and Controlby Krzysztof Kozlowski

    Springer 2006; US$ 159.00

    Presents results in robot motion and control. This book is suitable for graduate students of automation and robotics, informatics and management, mechatronics, electronics and production engineering systems as well as scientists and researchers working in these fields. more...
