Robotics: Designing the Mechanisms for Automated Machinery
Book News, Inc. While most books on robotics focus on the electrical and control systems, Sandler (mechanical engineering, Ben-Gurion U. of the Negev) provides engineers, students, and hobbyists with detailed methods and examples of how to design the mechanical parts. He discusses such aspects as the dynamic analysis of drives, feedback sensors, feeding and orientation devices, and manipulators. He uses drawings extensively but also some photographs. The 1991 edition was published by Prentice-Hall. -- Copyright © 1999 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR All rights reserved
Kurzbeschreibung At last a robotics design guide packed with fascinating examples and brilliant design ideas. Most robotics and automation books today emphasize the electrical and control aspects of design without any practical coverage of how to design and build the components, the machine, or the system. The author draws on his years of industrial design experience to show the reader the design process by focusing on the real, physical parts of robots and automated systems. Robotics, is an essential addition...
