Beschreibung

This book covers the specific aspects of mechanics and control theory that are applied in terrestrial locomotion systems. In addition to the theoretical basics and applications, exercises are provided. The solutions can be found at "www.springer.com/978-3-540-88840-6" as well as on
- video files regarding prototypes of wheeled and worm-like locomotion systems;
- e-learning software on the mechanical background;
- MAPLE and MATLAB programs for the dynamic simulation of locomotion systems.

From the reviews:

This textbook is aimed at undergraduate students looking for an introduction to the field of mobile robots from a mechanics and control perspective. (IEEE Control Systems Magazine, Vol. 30, June, 2010)

This book covers specific aspects of mechanics and control theory for terrestrial locomotion systems. the book combines various approaches and could be useful to students and engineers as a reference and textbook. (Alexander Mikhailovich Kovalev, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1217, 2011)
