9780387324753: Theory of Applied Robotics: Kinematics, Dynamics, and Control

Theory of Applied Robotics: Kinematics, Dynamics, and Control is appropriate for courses in robotics that emphasize kinematics, dynamics, and control.

The contents of this book are presented at a theoretical-practical level. It explains robotics concepts in detail, concentrating on their practical use. Related theorems and formal proofs are provided, as are real-life applications. Students, researchers, and practicing engineers alike will appreciate this user-friendly presentation of a wealth of robotics topics, most notably orientation, velocity, and forward kinematics.

Theory of Applied Robotics: Kinematics, Dynamics, and Control includes:

  • Richly illustrated chapters and over 200 diagrams to help readers visualize concepts.

  • More than 300 detailed examples with fully-worked solutions which expose readers to a balanced and broad understanding of robotics in today’s world.

  • A wealth of detailed problem sets and challenge problems for each chapter for the more advanced reader.

  • A rich solutions manual which is available for instructors.

Review:

From the reviews:

"The author has selected about 330 examples to illustrate the theory. Many examples are based on practical robotics problems, and the solutions are fully developed. In the introduction the symbols and abbreviations are defined and are being used consistently throughout the text. ... The organization of the book and its didactic niceties will be appreciated by serious students as well as by instructors." (Franz Selig, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1120 (22), 2007)

"This is a classical textbook on robotics that could employed in the teaching of an upper undergraduate or a lower graduate introductory robotics course ... . The exposition is guided through more than 300 examples, which is a main feature of this book. ... Each chapter ends with a summary and a collection of exercises. The book concludes with a list of references and four appendices." (Krzysztof Tchon , Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2009 b)
