Fundamental and technological topics are blended uniquely and developed clearly in nine chapters - with a gradually increasing level of complexity. A wide variety of relevant problems is raised throughout, and the proper tools to find engineering-oriented solutions are introduced and explained, step by step. Fundamental coverage includes kinematics, statics and dynamics of manipulators, and trajectory planning and motion control in free space. Technological aspects include actuators, sensors, hardware- and software-control architectures and industrial robot-control algorithms. Furthermore, established research results involving description of end-effector orientation, closed kinematic chains, kinematic redundancy and singularities, dynamic parameter identification, robust and adaptive control, and force and motion control are provided. To provide readers with a homogeneous background, three appendices are included on linear algebra, rigid-body mechanics, and feedback control. To impart practical skill, more than 50 examples and case studies are carefully worked out and interwoven through the text, with frequent resort to simulation. In addition, more than 80 end-of-chapter exercises are proposed, and the book is accompanied by a solutions manual containing the MATLABĀ® code for computer problems; this is available from the publisher free of charge to those adopting this volume as a textbook for courses.Written by authorities in Robotics, Modelling and Control of Robot Manipulators (Advanced Textbooks in Control and Signal Processing) by Lorenzo Sciavicco and Bruno Siciliano provides an excellent foundation for Robotics studies. Lorenzo Sciavicco and Bruno Siciliano's style is excellently suited towards Robotics studies, and will teach students the material clearly without overcomplicating the subject. What's more, the text is available in the Paperback format shown above (ISBN 9781852332211), as well as a number of other formats. As of March 2000, this revision raises the bar for Modelling and Control of Robot Manipulators (Advanced Textbooks in Control and Signal Processing)'s high standard of excellence, making sure that it stays one of the foremost Robotics studies textbooks
