  • Nachgiebige Mechanismenby Lena Zentner

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 56.00

    Compliant mechanisms are able to transfer movements and forces. These systems can be fabricated monolithically and are miniaturizable, friction?free, require little maintenance and can also be used to create complex pathways. This book is devoted to models for compliant mechanisms or parts of mechanisms, demonstrating their application... more...

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

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 129.00

    This book provides a uniform formula for the design of any planar four-bar linkages. It develops Burmester theory to fit for the design with any number of positions and offers a method to build the statics and structural dynamics of complex planar linkages. 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...

  • Design and Analysis of Mechanismsby Michael Rider

    Wiley 2015; US$ 79.95

    A planar or two-dimensional (2D) mechanism is the combination of two or more machine elements that are designed to convey a force or motion across parallel planes. For any mechanical engineer, young or old, an understanding of planar mechanism design is fundamental. Mechanical components and complex machines, such as engines or robots, are often... more...

  • Sociable Robots and the Future of Social Relationsby J. Seibt; M. NÝrskov; R. Hakli

    IOS Press 2014; US$ 157.00

    The robotics industry is growing rapidly, and to a large extent the development of this market sector is due to the area of social robotics ? the production of robots that are designed to enter the space of human social interaction, both physically and semantically. Since social robots present a new type of social agent, they have been aptly classified... more...

  • Gear Noise and Vibrationby J. Derek Smith

    CRC Press 2003; US$ 243.00

    Based on over 40 years of consultation and teaching experience, Gear Noise and Vibration demonstrates logical gear noise and vibration approaches without the use of complex mathematics or lengthy computation methods. The second edition offers new and extended discussions on high- and low-contact ratio gears, lightly loaded gears, planetary and split... more...

  • Compliant Mechanismsby Nicolae Lobontiu

    CRC Press 2002; US$ 319.00

    Preface INTRODUCTION COMPLIANCE-BASED DESIGN OF FLEXURE HINGES Introduction Generic Mathematical Formulation Single-Axis Flexure Hinges for Two-Dimensional Applications Multiple-Axis Flexure Hinges for Three-Dimensional Applications Two-Axis Flexure Hinges for Three-Dimensional Applications Conclusions STATICS OF FLEXURE-BASED COMPLIANT MECHANISMS... more...

  • Cam Design Handbookby Harold Rothbart

    McGraw-Hill Education 2003; US$ 157.50

    The cam, used to translate rotary motion into linear motion, is an integral part of many classes of machines, such as printing presses, textile machinery, gear-cutting machines, and screw machines. Emphasizing computer-aided design and manufacturing techniques, as well as sophisticated numerical control methods, this handbook allows engineers and... more...
