  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...
