This book has been designed specifically to compress an overview surrounding the gamut of robotics that equally involve the mechanics as well as the programming aspects. The study book’s contents are laid down in ten elaborate chapters along with challenging exercises at the end of each chapter. Beginning with an introduction, Robotics And Control moves into the more complex worlds of Jacobian and Singularities and Velocity Transformations. The book doesn’t try to compromise on examples in an attempt to help students. Therefore when the content deals with trajectory planning, the authors make use of both the Joint Space method and the Cartesian Space method to elucidate upon the concepts better and more holistically. In addition to this, the book also hosts a collection of five appendices, all of them primed to tackle the more tedious and complex mathematical derivatives. After dealing with the semantics of Inverse Kinematics, Manipulator Differential Motion and Statics, and the fifth chapter delves into Dynamic Modeling. Here again the book makes use of the Lagrange-Euler and Euler-Newton formulations. In addition to this, the challenging derivatives find their content allocated to the appendix so that students are ensured an uninterrupted flow while studying the coursework. The book then moves on to chapters comprehensively tackling the fundamentals behind the Control of Manipulators and Robotic Control. In fact, one of the appendices include a complete METLAB tutorial on using the package for Robotics. The remaining chapters deal with the subject matter of Robotic Sensors and Vision and also robotic applications in the industrial world and elsewhere. The book also includes 50 solved examples with additional appendices and attention to detail, Robotics And Control does credit the learner with an intimate view into the fascinating world of robotics. It also includes multiple exercises at the end of each chapter. Though the focus is primarily on the student communit.
