  • Direct Gear Designby Alexander L. Kapelevich

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 129.95

    Over the last several decades, gearing development has focused on improvements in materials, manufacturing technology and tooling, thermal treatment, and coatings and lubricants. In contrast, gear design methods have remained frozen in time, as the vast majority of gears are designed with standard tooth proportions. This over-standardization significantly... more...

  • Design of Special Planar Linkagesby Jing-Shan Zhao; Zhijing Feng; Ning Ma; Fulei Chu

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    Planar linkages play a very important role in mechanical engineering. As the simplest closed chain mechanisms, planar four-bar linkages are widely used in mechanical engineering, civil engineering and aerospace engineering.Design of Special Planar Linkages proposes a uniform design theory for planar four-bar linkages. The merit of the method proposed... more...

  • Robot Learning from Human Teachersby Sonia Chernova; Andrea L. Thomaz

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2014; US$ 40.00

    Learning from Demonstration (LfD) explores techniques for learning a task policy from examples provided by a human teacher. The field of LfD has grown into an extensive body of literature over the past 30 years, with a wide variety of approaches for encoding human demonstrations and modeling skills and tasks. Additionally, we have recently seen a focus... more...
