Biomechanics and Robotics

Marko B. Popović

December 21, 2013

The science and technology of biomechanics and robotics promise to be some of the most influential research directions of the twenty-first century. Biomechanics and Robotics goes beyond the individual areas of biomechanics, robotics, biomedical engineering, biomechatronics, and biologically...

Mechanical Logic in Three-Dimensional Space

Mechanical Logic in Three-Dimensional Space

Gennaro Auletta

October 24, 2013

The book explores how build a mechanical inferences by making use of arithmetic operations on a string of numbers representing statements. In this way logic is reduced to a branch of the combinatory calculus. It covers the field of traditional logic by showing that any kind of inference can be...

Hsiang-Chuan Liu, Wen-Pei Sung, Yao Wenli

October 11, 2013

This proceedings volume brings together some 189 peer-reviewed papers presented at the International Conference on Information Technology and Computer Application Engineering, held 27-28 August 2013, in Hong Kong, China. Specific topics under consideration include Control, Robotics, and Automation,...

Fundamentals in Modeling and Control of Mobile Manipulators

Fundamentals in Modeling and Control of Mobile Manipulators

Zhijun Li, Shuzhi Sam Ge

June 04, 2013

Mobile manipulators combine the advantages of mobile platforms and robotic arms, extending their operational range and functionality to large spaces and remote, demanding, and/or dangerous environments. They also bring complexity and difficulty in dynamic modeling and control system design. However...

Handbook of Collective Robotics: Fundamentals and Challenges

Handbook of Collective Robotics: Fundamentals and Challenges

Serge Kernbach

May 29, 2013

This book is devoted to mechatronic, chemical, bacteriological, biological, and hybrid systems, utilizing cooperative, networked, swarm, self-organizing, evolutionary and bio-inspired design principles and targeting underwater, ground, air, and space applications. It addresses issues such as...

Parallel Robots: Mechanics and Control

Parallel Robots: Mechanics and Control

Hamid D. Taghirad

February 20, 2013

Parallel structures are more effective than serial ones for industrial automation applications that require high precision and stiffness, or a high load capacity relative to robot weight. Although many industrial applications have adopted parallel structures for their design, few textbooks...

Human-Robot Interaction in Social Robotics

Human-Robot Interaction in Social Robotics

Takayuki Kanda, Hiroshi Ishiguro

September 26, 2012

Human–Robot Interaction in Social Robotics explores important issues in designing a robot system that works with people in everyday environments. Edited by leading figures in the field of social robotics, it draws on contributions by researchers working on the Robovie project at the ATR Intelligent...

Creation of a Conscious Robot: Mirror Image Cognition and Self-Awareness

Creation of a Conscious Robot: Mirror Image Cognition and Self-Awareness

Junichi Takeno

August 07, 2012

Present-day computers lack well-defined functions to accept various kinds of sensual information such as vision, hearing, and smelling (binding problem). Computers also lack any well-defined mechanisms to coordinate various behaviors in the presence of an object (conscious mechanism). This book...

Microsurgery: Advances, Simulations and Applications

Microsurgery: Advances, Simulations and Applications

Toshio Fukuda, Carlos Tercero

April 24, 2012

This book explains, using the example of endovascular intervention, the development of in vitro simulators for biomedical applications based on the scientific context in the robotics area and the explanation of the medical procedure to be simulated. It presents modeling methods for in vitro...

Robots Unlimited: Life in a Virtual Age

Robots Unlimited: Life in a Virtual Age

David Levy

November 16, 2005

Consider this: Robots will one day be able to write poetry and prose so touching that it will make men weep; compose dozens or even hundreds of symphonies that will rival the work of Mozart; judge a court case with absolute impartiality and fairness; or even converse with the natural ease of your...

Robot Teams: From Diversity to Polymorphism

Robot Teams: From Diversity to Polymorphism

Tucker Balch, Lynne E. Parker

April 17, 2002

This is a comprehensive volume on robot teams that will be the standard reference on multi-robot systems. The volume provides not only the essentials of multi-agent robotics theory but also descriptions of exemplary implemented systems demonstrating the key concepts of multi-robot research....

Algorithmic and Computational Robotics: New Directions 2000 WAFR

Algorithmic and Computational Robotics: New Directions 2000 WAFR

Bruce Donald, Kevin Lynch, Daniela Rus

April 21, 2001

Algorithms that control the computational processes relating sensors and actuators are indispensable for robot navigation and the perception of the world in which they move. Therefore, a deep understanding of how algorithms work to achieve this control is essential for the development of efficient...
