Theory of Applied Robotics: Kinematics, Dynamics, and Control is appropriate for courses in robotics that emphasize kinematics, dynamics, and control. The contents of this book are presented at a theoretical-practical level. It explains robotics concepts in detail, concentrating on their practical use. Related theorems and formal proofs are provided, as are real-life applications. Students, researchers, and practicing engineers alike will appreciate this user-friendly presentation of a wealth of robotics topics, most notably orientation, velocity, and forward kinematics. Theory of Applied Robotics: Kinematics, Dynamics, and Control includes: Richly illustrated chapters and over 200 diagrams to help readers visualize concepts. More than 300 detailed examples with fully-worked solutions which expose readers to a balanced and broad understanding of robotics in todays world. A wealth of detailed problem sets and challenge problems for each chapter for the more advanced reader. A rich solutions manual which is available for instructors. Reza N.
