Description

Robotics: Theory and Industrial Applications is a comprehensive, introductory text that presents principles, related systems, and applications in an easy-to-understand manner. The technical aspects of industrial robotics are covered in four units: Principles of Robotics; Power Supplies and Movement Systems; Sensing and End-of-Arm Tooling; and Control Systems and Maintenance. Topics included are degrees of freedom, programming, implementation planning, and system maintenance.
  • Student learning is enhanced by the use of a systems, or big-picture, approach to the material.
  • End-of-chapter activities build online research skills that extend beyond the textbook.
  • Features throughout the text address special interest topics, such as pioneers in the field, applications of technology, and careers.
