Description & Coverage
Description:

While technologies continue to advance in different directions, there still holds a constant evolution of interdisciplinary development. Robotics and mechatronics is a successful fusion of disciplines into a unified framework that enhances the design of products and manufacturing processes.

Engineering Creative Design in Robotics and Mechatronics captures the latest research developments in the subject field of robotics and mechatronics and provides relevant theoretical knowledge in this field. Providing interdisciplinary development approaches, this reference source prepares students, scientists, and professional engineers with the latest research development to enhance their skills of innovative design capabilities.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Bioinspired Robotics
  • Embedded and Smart Systems
  • Intelligent Systems
  • Medial Robots
  • Nanotechnology
  • Service Robots
  • Smart Sensors
  • Wireless Sensor Networks
Reviews & Statements

Mechanical and other engineers, physicists, mathematicians, and other contributors look at the current state of creative design in robotics and mechatronics. The topics include design for information processing in living neuronal networks, the efficient evolution of modular robot control through genetic programming, inferring intention through state representation in cooperative human-robot environments, developing and simulating an adaptive control system for the teleoperation of medical robots, time delay and uncertainty compensation in bilateral telerobotc systems, and cyberinfra product concept and its prototyping strategies.
