  • Intelligent Assembly Systemsby M.H. Lee; J.J. Rowland

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1995; US$ 113.00

    This book deals with a key area of industrial robotics — the automation of small batch assembly. Assembly imparts enormous added value but turns out to be extraordinarily difficult to automate. The work presented here, all from the Centre for Intelligent Systems at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth, addresses this issue and shows ways in... more...

  • Human Motion Simulationby Karim Abdel-Malek; Jasbir Arora

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 99.95

    Simulate realistic human motion in a virtual world with an optimization-based approach to motion prediction. With this approach, motion is governed by human performance measures, such as speed and energy, which act as objective functions to be optimized. Constraints on joint torques and angles are imposed quite easily. Predicting motion in this way... more...
