Soft robotics : Technologies and systems pushing the boundaries of robot abilities
free download

The proliferation of soft robotics research worldwide has brought substantial achievements in terms of principles, models, technologies, techniques, and prototypes of soft robots. Such achievements are reviewed here in terms of the abilities that they provide robots that were

Introductory robotics

This book grew out of a third year optional course taught to electrical engineering students at South Bank Polytechnic. A parallel course on robot dynamics and control was taught by a colleague. For completeness, I have added here my own treatment of robot dynamics. The

Minimal simulations for evolutionary robotics
free download

For several years now, various researchers have endeavoured to apply artificial evolution to the automatic design of control systems for robots. One of the major challenges they face is how the fitness of evolving controllers should be tested when each evolutionary run typically

Training and Tracking in Robotics .

Kindergarten robotics : Using robotics to motivate math, science, and engineering literacy in elementary school
free download

Robotics naturally lends itself to teaching math, science, technology and engineering in the K±12 classroom. LEGO Mindstorms makes it easy for students even in kindergarten to design and build their own robotic creations. However, the key to bringing engineering into

AI, Robotics , and the Future of Jobs
free download

The vast majority of respondents to the 2014 Future of the Internet canvassing anticipate that robotics and artificial intelligence will permeate wide segments of daily life by 202 with huge implications for a range of industries such as health care, transport and logistics

Autonomous military robotics : Risk, ethics, and design
free download

Imagine the face of warfare with autonomous robotics : Instead of our soldiers returning home in flag-draped caskets to heartbroken families, autonomous robots-mobile machines that can make decisions, such as to fire upon a target, without human intervention-can

Constructionism and robotics in education
free download

Over the last few years, interest in educational utilization of robotics has increased and several attempts have been made world-wide to introduce robotics in school education from Kindergarten to high secondary school, mostly in science and technology subjects

Materials for Enabling Hands-On Robotics and STEM Education.
free download

We describe our approach to enabling hands-on experiential robotics for all ages through the introduction of a robot programming workbook and robot test-bed. We describe the vision and motivation for the project, and then the details of the robot hardware, software

Telerehabilitation robotics : bright lights, big future
free download

The potential for remote diagnosis and treatment over the Internet using robotics is now a reality. The state of the art is exemplified by several Internet applications, and we explore the current trends in developing new systems. We review the technical challenges that lie

Special issue on swarm robotics .
free download

Swarm robotics is a new approach to the coordination of multi-robot systems. In contrast with traditional multi-robot systems which use centralised or hierarchical control and communication systems in order to coordinate robots behaviours, swarm robotics adopts a This book is an attempt to address the wide topic of grasping in robotics with a multi- disciplinary approach. Each chapter has been authored by an expert or a team of experts in a specific area spanning from the mechanics of machinery to control theory, informatics, and For about the last ten years, the scientific world of robotics has been influenced by worldwide innovative stimuli from research inspired by biological processes. Instead of rigid structures, the trend is now towards the use of soft, pliable organic structures, materials, and

MRI-compatible robotics

Robotic systems compatible with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) promise revolutionary robots guided by three-dimensional (3-D) MRI as well as efficient tools for clinical diagnostics in internal medicine and neurology. Additionally, programmable interfaces for

Robotics in education: Low-cost platforms for teaching integrated systems
free download

Robotics has become a major educational tool from secondary school to undergraduate courses to graduate education. Whats more interesting is that the use of robots is not limited to traditional engineering departments but has also found its way into a variety of arts and

Response to upper-limb robotics and functional neuromuscular stimulation following stroke.
