Springer Handbook of Robotics The second edition of this handbook provides a state-of-the-art cover view on the various aspects in the rapidly developing field of robotics. Reaching for the human frontier, robotics is vigorously engaged in the growing challenges of new emerging domains. Interacting, exploring, and working with humans, the new generation of robots will increasingly touch people and their lives. The credible prospect of practical robots among humans is the result of the scientific endeavour of a half a century of robotic developments that established robotics as a modern scientific discipline. The ongoing vibrant expansion and strong growth of the field during the last decade has fueled this second edition of the Springer Handbook of Robotics.

On-Line Trajectory Generation in Robotic Systems This monograph focuses on sensor integration in robotics and mechanical systems. It introduces a new algorithm to be used in the field of robot motion control that enables robots to react instantaneously to unforeseen events. This kind of behavior is important if we want to transfer the ability of performing a reflex motion to mechanical systems and robots. The proposed concept addresses various fields of robotics, in which sensor integration plays a fundamental role, for example, in service robotics, manipulation control systems, machine tools, mobile robotics and manipulation, and robotic surgery. Samples and use-cases accompany the book in order to provide a comprehensible insight into this interesting and relevant field of robotics.

Advances in Robotics Research This edited volume features the proceedings of the 2009 German Workshop on Robotics held in Braunschweig. It contains scientific contributions convention of researchers from academia and industry working on mathematical and algorithmic foundations of robotics, on the design and analysis of robotic systems as well as on robotic applications. In order to ensure a remarkable quality of the contributions, a highly selective review process was performed. The 2009 German Workshop on Robotics was an event of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Robotik (DGR, German Robotics Society).
