  • Active Sensors for Local Planning in Mobile Roboticsby Penelope Probert Smith

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 84.00 US$ 76.44

    This book describes recent work on active sensors for mobile robots. An active sensor interacts with its surroundings to supply data on demand for a particular function, gathering and abstracting information according to need rather than acting as a generic data gatherer. Details of the physical operation are hidden. The book deals mainly with active... more...

  • Adaptive Control of Robot Manipulatorsby An-Chyau Huang; Ming-Chih Chien

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 92.00 US$ 83.72

    This book introduces an unified function approximation approach to the control of uncertain robot manipulators containing general uncertainties. It works for free space tracking control as well as compliant motion control. It is applicable to the rigid robot and the flexible joint robot. Even with actuator dynamics, the unified approach is still feasible.... more...

  • Adaptive Motion of Animals and Machinesby Hiroshi Kimura; Kazuo Tsuchiya; Akio Ishiguro; Hartmut Witt

    Springer Japan 2006; US$ 101.46

    • Motivation It is our dream to understand the principles of animals’ remarkable ability for adaptive motion and to transfer such abilities to a robot. Up to now, mechanisms for generation and control of stereotyped motions and adaptive motions in well-known simple environments have been formulated to some extentandsuccessfullyappliedtorobots.However,principlesofadaptationto... more...

  • Adaptive Neural Network Control of Robotic Manipulatorsby Shuzhi S. Ge; Tong H. Lee; Christopher J. Harris

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1998; US$ 116.00 US$ 105.56

    Recently, there has been considerable research interest in neural network control of robots, and satisfactory results have been obtained in solving some of the special issues associated with the problems of robot control in an “on-and-off” fashion. This book is dedicated to issues on adaptive control of robots based on neural networks.... more...

  • Advanced Guided Vehiclesby Stephen Cameron; Penelope Probert

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1994; US$ 68.00 US$ 61.88

    The Oxford University Robotics Research Group has been working for several years to improve the ability of automated guided vehicles. This book brings together much of the key research work on sensors and planning that was inspired by an industrial vehicle donated by a factory automation division in GEC, GEC-FAST, together with background material... more...

  • Advanced Theory of Constraint and Motion Analysis for Robot Mechanismsby Jingshan Zhao; Zhijing Feng; Fulei Chu; Ning Ma

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 199.00

    Advanced Theory of Constraint and Motion Analysis for Robot Mechanisms provides a complete analytical approach to the invention of new robot mechanisms and the analysis of existing designs based on a unified mathematical description of the kinematic and geometric constraints of mechanisms. Beginning with a high level introduction to mechanisms... more...

  • Advances in Climbing and Walking Robotsby Ming Xie; Steven Dubowsky; Jean-Guy Fontaine

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 226.00 US$ 205.66

    Robotics is an exciting field in engineering and natural sciences. Robotics has already made a significant contribution to many industries with the widespread use of industrial robots for tasks such as assembly, welding, painting, and handling materials. In parallel, we have witnessed the emergence of special robots which can undertake assistive jobs,... more...
