  • Introduction to Roboticsby Tadej Bajd; Matja? Mihelj; Marko Munih

    Springer 2013; US$ 49.99

    This book is focused on geometrical models of robot mechanisms. Rotation and orientation of an object are described by Rodrigues's formula, rotation matrix and quaternions. Pose and displacement of an object are mathematically dealt with homogenous transformation matrices. The geometrical robot model is based on Denavit Hartenberg parameters. Direct... more...

  • 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...
