Synopsis:

With the science of robotics undergoing a major transformation just now, Springer’s new, authoritative handbook on the subject couldn’t have come at a better time. Having broken free from its origins in industry, robotics has been rapidly expanding into the challenging terrain of unstructured environments. Unlike other handbooks that focus on industrial applications, the Springer Handbook of Robotics incorporates these new developments. Just like all Springer Handbooks, it is utterly comprehensive, edited by internationally renowned experts, and replete with contributions from leading researchers from around the world. The handbook is an ideal resource for robotics experts but also for people new to this expanding field.

From the Back Cover:

Reaching for the human frontier, robotics is vigorously engaged in the growing challenges of new emerging domains. Interacting, exploring, and working with humans, the new generation of robots will increasingly touch people and their lives. The credible prospect of practical robots among humans is the result of the scientific endeavour of a half a century of robotic developments that established robotics as a modern scientific discipline. The Springer Handbook of Robotics brings a widespread
and well-structured compilation of classic and emerging application areas of robotics. From the foundations to the social and ethical implications of robotics, the handbook provides a comprehensive collection of the accomplishments in the field, and constitutes a premise of further advances towards new challenges in robotics.
This handbook, edited by two internationally renowned scientists with the support of an outstanding team of seven part editors and onehundred sixty-four authors, is an authoritative reference for robotics researchers, newcomers to the field, and scholars from related disciplines such as biomechanics, neurosciences, virtual simulation, animation, surgery, and sensor networks among others.

Bruno Siciliano is Professor of Control and Robotics at the University of Naples Federico II in Italy, President of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society, and a Fellow of both IEEE and ASME. Oussama Khatib is Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University in the USA, President of the International Foundation of Robotics Research, an IEEE Fellow, and a recipient of the Japan Robot Association Award in Research and Development. Introduction (Bruno Siciliano, Oussama Khatib) Part A: Robotics Foundations (David Orin) Part A presents the fundamental principles and methods that are used to model, design, and control a robotic system. All of the foundational topics are included in this part: kinematics, dynamics, mechanical design and actuation, sensing and estimation, motion planning, motion control, force control, robotic systems architectures and programming, and AI reasoning methods for task planning and learning. A chapter is devoted to each of these topics. The topics are expanded and applied to specific robotic structures and systems in subsequent parts. Chap. 1. Kinematics (Ken Waldron, James Schmiedeler) Chap. 2. Dynamics (Roy Featherstone, David Orin) Chap. 3. Mechanisms and Actuation (Victor Scheinman, Michael McCarthy) Chap. 4. Sensing and Estimation (Henrik Christensen, Gregory Hager) Chap. 5. Motion Planning (Lydia Kavraki, Steve LaValle) Chap. 6. Motion Control (Wankyun Chung, Li-Chen Fu, Su-Hau Hsu) Chap. 7. Force Control (Luigi Villani, Joris De Schutter) Chap. 8. Robotic Systems Architectures and Programming (David Kortenkamp, Reid Simmons) Chap. 9. AI Reasoning Methods for Robotics (Joachim Hertzberg, Raja Chatila) Part B: Robot Structures (Frank Park) Part B is concerned with the design, modeling, motion planning, and control of the actual physical realizations of a robot. Some of the more obvious mechanical structures that come to mind are arms, legs, and hands; to this list can be added wheeled vehicles and platforms, and robot structures at the micro and nano scales. With separate chapters devoted to performance criteria and model identification, the chapters in this part successively examine serial redundant mechanisms, parallel mechanisms, flexible robots, robot hands, robot legs, wheeled robots, and micro- and nanoscale.
