Robotics Theory and Applications (2ND 11 Edition) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Robotics: Theory and Industrial Applications is an introduction to the principles of industrial robotics, related systems, and applications. This text is a comprehensive tool in learning the technical aspects of robotics and includes coverage of power supply systems, degrees of freedom, programming methods, sensors, end effectors, implementation planning, and system maintenance. Each chapter begins with an outline of topics, learning objectives, and a listing of technical terms. The key concepts are discussed using a systems approach to enhance student learning.

The second edition is updated with full-color illustrations and photos that reflect changes in both the field of robotics and technology in general. The content has been revised to keep pace with robotic technology and reorganized to maximize student comprehension. Various features throughout the text address special interest topics, including pioneers in the field of robotics, careers in robotics, and exciting applications of robotic technology.

Book News Annotation:

Masterson et al. (technology, Eastern Kentucky U.) provide an introduction to the technical aspects of industrial robotic systems and applications for students. They discuses concepts using a "big picture" or systems approach, with coverage of general robotics theory and the basic principles of the technology, including degrees of freedom, classification, programming, and industrial applications. Individual system components, including power supply, movement and sensing systems, end-of-arm tooling, and control systems are covered, as are robotic control systems, implementation planning, and maintenance procedures. This edition has been revised and reorganized, with new topics reflecting new technology, updated and new color illustrations and photos, topic listings and learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter, and added activities.
