  • Microrobotics for Micromanipulationby Nicolas Chaillet; ; Sté gnier; phane

    Wiley 2013; US$ 222.00

    Microrobotics for Micromanipulation presents for the first time, in detail, the sector of robotics for handling objects of micrometer dimensions. At these dimensions, the behavior of objects is significantly different from the better known, higher scales, which leads us to implement solutions sometimes radically different from those most commonly... more...

  • Advanced Guided Vehiclesby Stephen Cameron; Penelope Probert

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1994; US$ 99.00

    The Oxford University Robotics Research Group has been working for several years to improve the ability of automated guided vehicles. This book brings together much of the key research work on sensors and planning that was inspired by an industrial vehicle donated by a factory automation division in GEC, GEC-FAST, together with background material... more...

  • Recent Trends in Mobile Robotsby Yuan F. Zheng

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1994; US$ 255.00

    This book presents recent trends in the field as perceived by a global selection of researchers and experts. Subjects covered include motion planning of mobile robots in unknown environments, coordination between mobility and manipulability, computation environments for mobile robots, nonlinear control of mobile robots and environmental modeling using... more...

  • Advances in Climbing and Walking Robotsby Ming Xie; Steven Dubowsky; Jean-Guy Fontaine

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 368.00

    Robotics is an exciting field in engineering and natural sciences. Robotics has already made a significant contribution to many industries with the widespread use of industrial robots for tasks such as assembly, welding, painting, and handling materials. In parallel, we have witnessed the emergence of special robots which can undertake assistive jobs,... more...

  • Roboticsby George Bekey; Robert Ambrose; Vijay Kumar

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 113.00

    This book presents the results of an assessment of the state of robotics in Japan, South Korea, Western Europe and Australia and a comparison of robotics R&D programs in these countries with those in the United States. The comparisons include areas like robotic vehicles, space robotics, service robots, humanoid robots, networked robots, and robots... more...

  • Visual Navigationby Yiannis Aloimonos

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 145.00

    In this book, the barriers between different disciplines have been smoothed and the workings of vision systems of biological organisms are made clear in computational terms to computer scientists and engineers. At the same time, fundamental principles arising from computational considerations are made clear both to empirical scientists and engineers.... more...

  • SmartDataby Inman Harvey; Ann Cavoukian; George Tomko; Don Borrett; Hon Kwan; Dimitrios Hatzinakos

    Springer 2013; US$ 199.00

    SmartData empowers personal data by wrapping it in a cloak of intelligence such that it now becomes the individual’s virtual proxy in cyberspace. No longer will personal data be shared or stored in the cloud as merely data, encrypted or otherwise; it will now be stored and shared as a constituent of the binary string specifying the entire SmartData... more...

  • 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...

  • Fundamentals in Modeling and Control of Mobile Manipulatorsby Zhijun Li

    CRC Press 2013; US$ 129.95

    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...
