Advances in Robot Kinematics: Motion in Man and Machine

Book Description
This book is a collection of 58 peer reviewed papers, which should be of interest to researchers inquiring about modern topics and methods in the kinematics, control and design of robotic manipulators. The papers consider the full range of robotic systems, including serial, parallel and cable driven manipulators, both planar and spatial. The systems range from being less than fully mobile to kinematically redundant to overconstrained. In addition to recognized areas, this book also presents recent advances in emerging areas such as the design and control of humanoids and humanoid subsystems, and the analysis, modeling and simulation of human body motions. As well as the mobility analysis of protein molecules and the development of machines which incorporate man.
