Publisher Comments:

For senior-year or first-year graduate level robotics courses generally taught from the mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, or computer science departments.Since its original publication in 1986, Craig's Introduction to Robotics: Mechanics and Control has been the market's leading textbook used for teaching robotics at the university level. With perhaps one-half of the material from traditional mechanical engineering material, one-fourth control theoretical material, and one-fourth computer science, it covers rigid-body transformations, forward and inverse positional kinematics, velocities and Jacobians of linkages, dynamics, linear control, non-linear control, force control methodologies, mechanical design aspects, and programming of robots.

Book News Annotation:

This text for senior undergraduate and first-year graduate courses introduces the science and engineering of mechanical manipulation. Early chapters cover topics in mechanical engineering and mathematics, and later chapters cover control-theoretical material. Two final chapters look at topics related to computer science. The text emphasizes computational aspects of problems, with each chapter on mechanics containing a brief section devoted to computational considerations. The audience for the book is not restricted to mechanical engineers, and includes electrical engineers, computer scientists, and mathematicians. Author information is not given.

Synopsis:

Now in its third edition, Introduction to Robotics by John J. Craig provides readers with real-world practicality with underlying theory presented. With one half of the material from traditional mechanical engineering material, one fourth control theoretical material, and one fourth computer science, the book covers rigid-body transformations, forward and inverse positional kinematics, velocities and Jacobians of linkages, dynamics, linear control, non-linear control, force control methodologies, mechanical design aspects and programming of robots. For engineers.

Synopsis:

An essential book for engineers developing robotic systems, as well as anyone involved with the mechanics, control, or programming of robotic systems. Now in its third edition, the first edition of this classic text was published approximately 20 years ago. The second edition has been in print and highly successful for 16 years.

The book introduces the science and technology of mechanical manipulation. The third edition is organized into 13 chapters.

Numerous exercises and a programming assignment appear at the end of each chapter. Computational aspects of problems are emphasized throughout the book. New in the third edition are MATLAB® exercises.

I read a couple of chapters from the book. It is a well organized book that takes a reader from the basic theoretical background up to real world problems without getting into complicated mathematical nitty gritty.

Love the book. I am still reading it.
