Robot applications design manual
Concise International Encyclopedia of Robotics Edited by Richard C. Dorf This condensed version of the highly successful 3-volume work is a tightly drawn compendium of existing robotic knowledge and practice, culled from over 300 leading authorities worldwide. The encyclopedia's top-down approach includes coverage of robots and their components, characteristics, design, application, as well as their social impact and economic value. The text also includes a look at robot vision, robots in Japan and Western Europe, as well as prognostications on the state of robotics in the year 2000 and beyond. Fully cross-referenced, this accessible, easy-to-use guide is suitable to the everyday needs of professionals and students alike. 1990 (0 471-51698-8) 1,190 pp. Robot Analysis and Control Haruhiko Asada and Jean-Jacques E. Slotine Developed out of the authors' coursework at MIT, here is a clear practical introduction to robotics, with a firm emphasis on the physical aspects of the science. Described in depth are the fundamental kinematic and dynamic analysis of manipulator arms, as well as the key techniques for trajectory control and compliant motion control. The comprehensive text is supported by a wealth of examples, most of which have been drawn from industrial practice or advanced research topics. Problem sets at the end of the book complement the text's rigorously instructional tone. 1986 (0 471-83029-1) 266 pp. Robot Wrist Actuators Mark E. Rosheim Viewed through lucid diagrammatic and isometric drawings, photographs, and illustrations, the complex morphologies of robot wrists are made instantly tangible in this graphics oriented approach to the science. Also catalogued are a host of wrist actuator designs-progressing from the simple to the more sophisticated as wall as a look at wrists of the past, now in use, and under development. The author provides his own successful wrist actuator techniques and methods and the culminating designs. This is a fascinating first look at robotics for the designer, engineer, and student interested in developing the skills requisite for innovation. 1989 (0 471-61595-1) 271 pp.
