An intuitiveintroduction to robotic theory and application
Since its originalpublication in 1986, Craig's Introduction to Robotics: Mechanics andControl has been the leading textbook for teaching robotics at theuniversity level. Blending traditional mechanical engineering material withcomputer science and control theoretical concepts, the text covers a range oftopics, including rigid-body transformations, forward and inverse positionalkinematics, velocities and Jacobians of linkages, dynamics, linear andnon-linear control, force control methodologies, mechanical design aspects, androbotic programming.
The 4th Edition featuresa balance of application and theory, introducing the science and engineering ofmechanical manipulation-establishing and building on foundational understandingof mechanics, control theory, and computer science. With an emphasis on the computationalaspects of problems, the text aims to present material in a simple, intuitive manner.
