Abstract

In defining the scope of our subject, we have to establish the genealogy of robotic mechanical systems. These are, obviously, a subclass of the much broader class of mechanical systems. Mechanical systems, in turn, constitute a subset of the more general concept of dynamic systems. Therefore, in the final analysis, we must have an idea of what a system, in general, is.
