Parallel Robots : Mechanics and Control, CRC press, Feb. 2013. | Preview | CRC |

Features :

  • Introduces analysis and design tools required to create a parallel robot
  • Combines coverage of kinematics with thorough analysis of dynamics and control
  • Discusses cable-driven robots, a promising new generation of parallel structures
  • Covers advanced topics such as dynamics model verification, redundancy resolution, and adaptive and robust control
  • Examines dynamics through three methods: Newton-Euler, the principle of virtual work, and Lagrange formulations
