  • Advanced Mechanics in Robotic Systemsby Nestor Eduardo Nava Rodríguez

    Springer 2011; US$ 129.00

    Humans have always been fascinated with the concept of artificial life and the construction of machines that look and behave like people. As the field of robotics evolves, it demands continuous development of successful systems with high-performance characteristics for practical applications. Advanced Mechanics in Robotic Systems illustrates original... more...

  • Advances in Robotics Researchby Torsten Kröger; Friedrich M. Wahl

    Springer 2009; US$ 269.00

    A convention of roboticists from academia and industry working on mathematical and algorithmic foundations of robotics, on the design and analysis of robotic systems as well as on robotic applications. It includes contributions from researchers in German-speaking countries as well as from the international robotics community. more...

  • A Brief Illustrated History of Machines and Mechanismsby Emilio Bautista Paz; Marco Ceccarelli; Javier Echavarri Otero; Jose Luis Munoz Sanz

    Springer 2010; US$ 99.00

    This work deals with mechanical manufacturing processes in history, examined through the machines associated with those processes. A tool is only included if it is part of a machine tool, with devices made up of moving parts. Once the analytical field has been marked out, the chosen descriptive method is basically graphic. This historical compendium... more...

  • Cam Design Handbookby Harold Rothbart

    McGraw-Hill Education 2003; US$ 157.50

    Packed with hundreds of detailed illustrations! THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO CAM TECHNOLOGY! The transformation of a simple motion, such as rotation, into linear or other motion is accomplished by means of a cam -- two moving elements mounted on a fixed frame. Cam devices are versatile -- almost any specified motion can be obtained. If you... more...

  • Compliant Mechanismsby Nicolae Lobontiu

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 304.00

    Flexure hinges hold several advantages over classical rotation joints, including no friction losses, no need for lubrication, no hysteresis, compactness, capacity to be utilized in small-scale applications, ease of fabrication, virtually no assembly, and no required maintenance. Compliant Mechanisms: Design of Flexure Hinges provides practical answers... more...

  • Concise Encyclopedia of Roboticsby Stan Gibilisco

    McGraw-Hill Education 2002; US$ 21.95

    OVER 400 UP-TO-THE-MINUTE TERMS INSTANT CLARIFICATION ON ROBOTICS AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TERMS, TECHNIQUES, AND SYSTEMS This handy collection of straightforward, to-the-point definitions is exactly what robotics and artificial intelligence hobbyists need to get and stay up to speed with all new terms that have recently emerged in robotics... 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...

  • 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...

  • From Robot to Human Grasping Simulationby Beatriz León; Antonio Morales; Joaquin Sancho-Bru

    Springer 2013; US$ 109.00

    The human hand and its dexterity in grasping and manipulating objects are some of the hallmarks of the human species. For years, anatomic and biomechanical studies have deepened the understanding of the human handâ??s functioning and, in parallel, the robotics community has been working on the design of robotic hands capable of manipulating objects... more...

  • Gear Cutting Toolsby Stephen P. Radzevich

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 210.00

    This book presents the DG/K-based method of surface generation, a novel and practical mathematical method for designing gear cutting tools with optimal parameters. The author, an industry leader for the past 30 years, proposes a scientific classification for all possible kinds of the gear machining meshes before discussing optimal designs of gear... more...
