Introduction to Robotics and Digital Human Modeling -- Mathematical Preliminaries -- Representations of Rigid Motion -- Redundant Robots and Hybrid-Chain Robotic Systems -- Digital Mock-Up and 3D Animation for Robot Arms -- Robotic Dynamics: Modeling and Formulations -- Control of Robotic Systems -- Digital Human Modeling: Kinematics and Statics -- Digital Mock-Up and 3D Animation for Robot Arms -- Robotic Dynamics: Modeling and Formulations -- Control of Robotic Systems -- Digital Human Modeling: Kinematics and Statics.
In: Springer eBooksSummary: This book provides readers with a solid set of diversified and essential tools for the theoretical modeling and control of complex robotic systems, as well as for digital human modeling and realistic motion generation. Following a comprehensive introduction to the fundamentals of robotic kinematics, dynamics and control systems design, the author extends robotic modeling procedures and motion algorithms to a much higher-dimensional, larger scale and more sophisticated research area, namely digital human modeling. Most of the methods are illustrated by MATLAB™ codes and sample graphical visualizations, offering a unique closed loop between conceptual understanding and visualization. Readers are guided through practicing and creating 3D graphics for robot arms as well as digital human models in MATLAB™, and through driving them for real-time animation. This work is intended to serve as a robotics textbook with an extension to digital human modeling for senior undergraduate and graduate engineering students. At the same time, it represents a comprehensive reference guide for all researchers, scientists and professionals eager to learn the fundamentals of robotic systems as well as the basic methods of digital human modeling and motion generation.
