About this Textbook

This introductory text treats the following subjects: the basic characteristics of industrial robot mechanisms;  the pose and movement of an object, which are described by homogenous transformation matrices; a geometric model of robot mechanism; a short introduction into kinematics and dynamics of robots; robot sensors and the planning of robot trajectories; basic control schemes resulting in either desired end-effector trajectory or force; robot grippers and feeding devices, which are described together with the basics of robot vision; the planning of robot assembly; and finally, robot standards and safety are briefly dealt with. The book concludes with a glossary in English, French and German.

This volume is supplementary reading for courses in robotics or industrial robotics and requires minimal knowledge of physics and mathematics.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This simply titled work is a result of carefully delivered lectures … for multiple classes of undergraduate engineering students over more than a decade. This exemplary course resource can serve as a basis for the study of robotics. Pedagogically well structured, it covers the fundamentals of industrial robotics … . this book is a concise, readable reference source for those getting their feet wet in the field. … Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower- and upper-division undergraduates, two-year technical program students, and general readers.” (G. Trajkovski, Choice, Vol. 47 (11), July, 2010)
