  • Essential Principles for Autonomous Roboticsby Henry Hexmoor

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2013; US$ 40.00

    From driving, flying, and swimming, to digging for unknown objects in space exploration, autonomous robots take on varied shapes and sizes. In part, autonomous robots are designed to perform tasks that are too dirty, dull, or dangerous for humans. With nontrivial autonomy and volition, they may soon claim their own place in human society. These robots... more...

  • Fundamentals in Modeling and Control of Mobile Manipulatorsby Zhijun Li; Shuzhi Sam Ge

    CRC Press 2013; US$ 154.95

    Mobile manipulators combine the advantages of mobile platforms and robotic arms, extending their operational range and functionality to large spaces and remote, demanding, and/or dangerous environments. They also bring complexity and difficulty in dynamic modeling and control system design. However, advances in nonlinear system analysis and control... more...

  • LEGO® bauenby Allan Bedford; Volkmar Gronau

    dpunkt.verlag 2013; US$ 15.26

    Was ist der Unterschied zwischen einer Fliese und einer Platte? Warum ist es keine gute Idee, LEGO-Steine zu Säulen aufeinanderzustapeln, um daraus eine Wand zu bauen? Wie legst du ein LEGO-Mosaik? Wie konstruierst du Modelle in unterschiedlichen Maßstäben? Die Antworten auf diese und andere Fragen erhältst du in "LEGO bauen"! Diese farbige... more...

  • Bio-inspired Flying Robotsby Jean-Christophe Zufferey

    EFPL Press 2008; US$ 83.95

    This book demonstrates how bio-inspiration can lead to fully autonomous flying robots without relying on external aids. Most existing aerial robots fly in open skies, far from obstacles, and rely on external beacons, mainly GPS, to localise and navigate. However, these robots are not able to fly at low altitude or in confined environments, and yet... more...

  • Feedback Control of Dynamic Bipedal Robot Locomotionby Eric R. Westervelt; Jessy W. Grizzle; Christine Chevallereau; Jun Ho Choi; Benjamin Morris

    CRC Press 2007; US$ 231.00

    Bipedal locomotion is among the most difficult challenges in control engineering. Most books treat the subject from a quasi-static perspective, overlooking the hybrid nature of bipedal mechanics. Feedback Control of Dynamic Bipedal Robot Locomotion is the first book to present a comprehensive and mathematically sound treatment of feedback design for... more...
