Description & Coverage
Description:

Service robots serve a wide range of people in residential, commercial, industrial, military, and many more applied fields.

Service Robots and Robotics: Design and Application offers the latest research within the field, combining a mixture of case studies, research, and future directions. Staying abreast of the latest research within the field not only affords practitioners and academics the foot forward they need, it allows for a comprehensive look into the latest advances in a burgeoning field of technology. From tasks no humans can do to everyday tasks for the disabled and elderly, service robots are an enormously important facet of modern technology, and this volume offers a current look into their state of the art.

Coverage:

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

  • Actuators
  • Domestic Robot
  • Human-Machine Interaction
  • Kinematic Design
