  • Robotics and Automation Handbookby Thomas R. Kurfess

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 210.00

    As the capability and utility of robots has increased dramatically with new technology, robotic systems can perform tasks that are physically dangerous for humans, repetitive in nature, or require increased accuracy, precision, and sterile conditions to radically minimize human error. The Robotics and Automation Handbook addresses the major aspects... 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...

  • The Robosapien Companionby J. Samans

    Springer 2005; US$ 17.49

    Whether one is a robotics expert or a beginner, this book provides background information on general robotics, including Mark Tilden's theories of BEAM robotics and how they relate to Robosapien. Topics range from the particular to the general, from the technical to the 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 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Quadrupedal Locomotionby Joaquin Estremera; Elena Garcia; Pablo González-de-Santos

    Springer 2007; US$ 209.00

    Walking machines have advantages over traditional vehicles. However, their use in industry and services is limited in scope. This book presents some of the methods and techniques developed to deal with the problems that prevent legged robots being more widely used. It is useful for researchers, postgraduates and senior undergraduates in robotics. more...
