  • Gives an historical background to grasping in robotics with the first achievements in this field and its evolution through the centuries
  • Addresses mechanical design issues for both grippers and robotic hands
  • Includes various applications, such as humanoid robots and horticulture harvesting

Grasping in Robotics contains original contributions in the field of grasping in robotics

with a broad multidisciplinary approach. This gives the possibility of addressing all the

major issues related to robotized grasping, including milestones in grasping through

the centuries, mechanical design issues, control issues, modelling achievements and

issues, formulations and software for simulation purposes, sensors and vision integration,

applications in industrial field and non-conventional applications (including service

robotics and agriculture).

 

The contributors to this book are experts in their own diverse and wide ranging fields.

This multidisciplinary approach can help make Grasping in Robotics of interest to a very

wide audience. In particular, it can be a useful reference book for researchers, students

and users in the wide field of grasping in robotics from many different disciplines

including mechanical design, hardware design, control design, user interfaces, modelling,

simulation, sensors and humanoid robotics. It could even be adopted as a reference

textbook in specific PhD courses.
