 Book Description



The 2nd volume of ‘Advances in Robotics and Automatic Control: Reviews‘ Book Series contains 5 chapters written by 12 authors from 5 countries: Australia, Egypt, Mexico, Russia and Spain. But it is not a set of reviews.


As usually, each chapter contains the extended state-of-the-art followed by new, unpublished before, obtained results. This book ensures that our readers will stay at the cutting edge of the field and get the right and effective start point and road map for the further researches and developments. With this unique combination of information in each volume, the ‘Advances in Robotics and Automatic Control: Reviews‘ book Series will be a valuable tool for those who are involved in research and development of different industrial robots, automation and robotic systems.
