Robotic Basics, Theory and Practice by Wendell Chun has been written for engineering students taking their first robotics course, and for practicing engineers and others interested in a survey of modern robotics design and applications. Mechanical, Electical and Industrial Engineering students, and those in Computer Science will benefit from this text, while professionals and hobbyists will find the most up-to-date coverage of stationary and (especially) mobile robot technology. Chun provides a broad, modern overview of this interdisciplinary field, using numerous examples, applications, cases, illustrations and photographs.
Coverage of the newest types of robots used in industry is provided, with extensive treatment of mobile robots. Kinematics and dynamics of machinery are covered in detail, to provide a strong conceptual background for robot motion analysis and design. Use of modern sensor technologies, global and local navigation techniques, and obstacle avoidance are among the mobile robot topics covered. Robot programming is introduced, with examples of program code provided and explained. Detailed case studies on Manipulator Control and on Mobile Robots are provided to give readers an inside look at these two major classes of robots.
