9780387294124: Fundamentals of Robotic Mechanical Systems: Theory, Methods, and Algorithms (Mechanical Engineering Series)

This book deals with robots - such as remote manipulators, multifingered hands, walking machines, flight simulators, and machine tools - that rely on mechanical systems to perform their tasks. It aims to establish the foundations on which the design, control and implementation of the underlying mechanical systems are based.

The treatment assumes familiarity with some calculus, linear algebra, and elementary mechanics; however, the elements of rigid-body mechanics and of linear transformations are reviewed in the first chapters, making the presentation self-contained. An extensive set of exercises is included and this new edition incorporates numerous advances.

From the Back Cover:

Fundamentals of Robotic Mechanical Systems, Third Edition addresses robots at large - such as multi-fingered hands, walking machines, flight simulators, and machine tools - that rely on mechanical systems to perform their tasks. The author establishes the foundations on which the design, control, and implementation of the underlying mechanical subsystems are based. The treatment assumes familiarity with some calculus, linear algebra, and elementary mechanics; however, the elements of rigid-body mechanics and linear transformations are reviewed in the first chapters, making the presentation self-contained.
Features of this book are:
kinematics and dynamics of serial manipulators with decoupled architectures
trajectory planning
determination of the angular velocity and angular acceleration of a rigid body from point data
inverse and direct kinematics of general serial and of parallel manipulators
dynamics of general parallel manipulators of the platform type
kinematics and dynamics of rolling robots
This edition has been reorganized and includes new exercises as well as new photographs and all material have been updated where appropriate.

Review:

From the reviews of the third edition:

"The principal aim of this book is to serve as a textbook for a robotics course and as a reference for practicing engineers. It may be used also by an audience that ranges from junior undergraduates to doctoral students. ... the book has the nice feature that the different chapters are quite independent and may serve as a guide to various important problems in robotics. Each chapter offers a lot of examples and exercises, which is the most significant ... of the book." (Clementina D. Mladenova, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2009 c)
