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.
