About this book


The CISM-IFToMM RoManSy Symposia have played a dynamic role in the development of the theory and practice of robotics. The proceedings of the eleven symposia to date present a world view of the state of the art. The proceedings of this eleventh edition focus mainly on problems of mechanical engineering and control.

"... The book is suitable for all students, researchers, and practicing engineers interested in the field of robotics as an overview of current research activities. It is as comprehensive as it can be in a field, in which possible applications, mathematical methodologies, control architectures, and mechanical designs vary as much as it is the case in robotics.” Archive of Applied Mechanics 7-8/98
