Mechanical movements

  • 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. Nørskov; 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Robot Intelligence Technology and Applications 2by

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 279.00

    We are facing a new technological challenge on how to store and retrieve knowledge and manipulate intelligence for autonomous services by intelligent systems which should be capable of carrying out real world tasks autonomously. To address this issue, robot researchers have been developing intelligence technology (InT) for ?robots that think? which... more...

  • Planning and Decision Making for Aerial Robotsby Yasmina Bestaoui Sebbane

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 179.00

    This book provides an introduction to planning and decision making for aerial robots, including motion planning, deterministic decision making, decision making under uncertainty, and multi-robot planning. It includes case studies. more...

  • Mechanism Designby Kevin Russell; Qiong Shen; Raj S. Sodhi

    CRC Press 2013; US$ 132.95

    "? the book provides a lot of MATLAB ® and SimMechanics examples. Students could benefit from the experience of solving the complex spatial synthesis problems using computer tools. The mathematics software tools are very efficient to do the displacement analysis, too." ?Wen-Tzong Lee, National Pingtung University of Science and Technology, Neipu,... more...

  • ROBOT2013: First Iberian Robotics Conferenceby

    Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 279.00

    This book contains the proceedings of the ROBOT 2013: FIRST IBERIAN ROBOTICS CONFERENCE and it can be said that included both state of the art and more practical presentations dealing with implementation problems, support technologies and future applications. A growing interest in Assistive Robotics, Agricultural Robotics, Field Robotics, Grasping... more...

  • ROBOT2013: First Iberian Robotics Conferenceby

    Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 399.00

    The interest in robotics has remarkably augmented over recent years. Novel solutions for complex and very diverse application fields (exploration/intervention in severe environments, assistive, social, personal services, emergency rescue operations, transportation, entertainment, unmanned aerial vehicles, medical, etc.), has been anticipated by means... more...

  • Modern Gear Productionby H J Watson

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    Modern Gear Production focuses on the processes and methods in gear making. The book first gives information on the history of gear making and types of gears. Topics such as the classification of gears based on the disposition of their shafts; shafts lying in the same plane with axes intersecting; and shafts lying in parallel planes but with axes... more...
