Description

Interest in control of climbing and walking robots has remarkably increased over the years. Novel solutions of complex mechanical systems such as climbing, walking, flying and running robots with different kinds of locomotion and the technologies that support them and their applications are the evidence of significant progress in the area of robotics. Supporting technologies include the means by which robots use to sense, model, and navigate through their environments and, of course, actuation and control technologies. Human interaction including exoskeletons, prostheses and orthoses, as well as service robots, are increasingly active important pertinent areas of research. In addition, legged machines and tracked platforms with software architecture seem to be currently the research idea of most interest to the robotics community.

Readership: Systems and control engineers, electrical engineers, mechanical engineers in academic, research and industrial settings. Engineers and practitioners in the public services sectors in health care, manufacturing, supply and delivery services.
Key Features:
  • The book will contain extended versions of the conference presentations. Contrary to typical proceedings collections it has an extended form of presentation — particular chapters will contain exhaustive descriptions of the solved problems
  • It is intended that the Conference is the forum of technical discussion and interchange of ideas for people both from universities and industry. Because of this it is addressed to a wide group of readers: researchers, PhD students and practitioners
  • Prominent professors deliver plenary presentations
