Synopses & Reviews
A complete overview of the fundamentals of robotics. Case study examples of educational, industrial and generic robots are discussed. Class demonstration software is provided with the laboratory manual. (vs. Craig, Fu, and Asada).
Text/reference begins by presenting the groundwork in robotic manipulation, the algebraic "arm equation" and its solution, and techniques for planning robot motions. Remaining chapters treat more advanced topics including differential motion and statics, torque-based control, robotic vision, and hig
