9780130613097: Introduction to Robotics: Analysis, Systems, Applications

For one-semester, senior-level undergraduate/first-year graduate courses in Robotics.

This text serves as an introduction to robotics analysis: the systems and sub-systems that constitute robots and robotic systems, and robotics applications. As such, it covers all the fundamentals, including kinematics, kinetics and force control, and trajectory planning of robots; it covers sub-systems such as actuators, sensors, and vision systems; and it covers robotics applications. Introduction to Robotics also includes topics related to mechatronics, microprocessor actuator control, integration of sensors, vision systems, and fuzzy logic.

From the Back Cover:

This book offers comprehensive, yet concise coverage of robotics. It covers analysis of robot kinematics, differential motions, robot dynamics, and trajectory planning. It then proceeds to discuss in detail such important robot subsystems as actuators, sensors, vision systems, and fuzzy logic (at an introductory level). Robotic applications are drawn from a wide variety of fields.

Features:

  • Provides comprehensive coverage of kinematics and dynamics of robotics, plus coverage of important subsystems.
  • Includes microprocessor and mechatronic robotics applications, as well as an entire chapter on vision systems (image processing and image analysis).
  • Applications oriented with design projects, examples, and homework problems.
  • Introduces a running design project at the end of Chapter 2. At the end of each subsequent chapter, the reader is asked to apply the, concepts learned to the running design example. The intended result is that by the end of the book the reader has designed a complete robot.

The book is intended for senior or first-year graduate courses in robotics. It is also an excellent resource for practicing engineers to aid their development and design work in robotics.
