Robotics Research: The Second International Symposium, Volume 2
Hideo Hanafusa, Hirochika Inoue
MIT Press, May 28, 1985 - Computers - 552 pages
The sixty-two contributions in this book are by the world's leading researchers from Japan, the United States, France, The United Kingdom, Australia, and West Germany. They provide a unique opportunity to view the future shape of robotics in such areas as arm and hand design, dynamics, image understanding, locomotion, touch and compliance, systems, kinematics, visual inspection, control, assembly, and sensing.
In five parts the book covers visual perception (including topics about representation and recognition of three-dimensional objects, sensory interaction, and vision processors), the computational aspect of manipulator control (with chapters on kinematics and design and control theory), implementation of action (covering manipulator and end effecter and mobile robots), task level planning and theory of manipulation, and discussions of industrial applications of robots and key issues of robotics research.
The first international symposium on robotics research was organized around a view of robotics as the "intelligent connection of perception to action." Edited by Michael Brady and Richard Paul, it was published by The MIT Press in 1984.
This book is thirteenth in The MIT Press Series in Artificial Intelligence, edited by Patrick Henry Winston and Michael Brady.
