Understanding Robotics is an introductory text on robotics and covers topics ranging from from the components of a robotic system, including sensors, to the industrial applications of robotics. The major factors justifying the use of robots for manufacturing are also discussed, along with the use of robots as a manufacturing tool, their impact on people, and the future of robotics. This book is comprised of eight chapters and begins with an overview of the roots of robotics and the use of robots in the manufacturing environment; advances in robot technology and typical applications of robots; reasons for using robots in the manufacturing environment; and the different manufacturing functions they perform, including visual inspection and intricate welding operations. A definition of the word ""robot"" is presented, and the impact of robots on jobs is considered. Subsequent chapters focus on the elements of a robot system, including the computer/controller, actuator power drive, and sensors; sensor applications in robotics; robotic usage by industry; economic justification of robotics; manufacturing technology and the role robotics can play in improving the United States' competitive manufacturing position; and the impact of robots on people and vice versa. The final chapter is devoted to market trends and competitiveness of the U.S. robotics industry and assesses the future prospects of robotics. This monograph should be a valuable resource for technologists and researchers interested in robots and robotics.

Field and Service Robotics

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=2549131&cjsku=2549131...
This bookcontains the proceedings of the 10th FSR, (Field and Service Robotics) which isthe leading single-track conference on applications of robotics in challengingenvironments. The 10 th FSR was held in Toronto, Canada from 23-26June 2015.  The book contains 42full-length, peer-reviewed papers organized into a variety of topics:  Aquatic, Vision, Planetary, Aerial,Underground, and Systems. The goal ofthe book and the conference is to report and encourage the development andexperimental evaluation of field and service robots, and to generate a vibrantexchange and discussion in the community. Field robots are non-factory robots, typically mobile, that operate incomplex and dynamic environments:  on theground (Earth or other planets), under the ground, underwater, in the air or inspace.  Service robots are those thatwork closely with humans to help them with their lives.  The first FSR was held in Canberra,Australia, in 1997.  Since that firstmeeting, FSR has been held roughly every two years, cycling through Asia,Americas, Europe.
