Grasping in Robotics contains original contributions in the field of grasping in robotics with a broad multidisciplinary approach. This gives the possibility of addressing all the major issues related to robotized grasping, including milestones in grasping through the centuries, mechanical design issues, control issues, modelling achievements and issues, formulations and software for simulation purposes, sensors and vision integration, applications in industrial field and non-conventional applications (including service robotics and agriculture).
The contributors to this book are experts in their own diverse and wide ranging fields. This multidisciplinary approach can help make Grasping in Robotics of interest to a very wide audience. In particular, it can be a useful reference book for researchers, students and users in the wide field of grasping in robotics from many different disciplines including mechanical design, hardware design, control design, user interfaces, modelling, simulation, sensors and humanoid robotics. It could even be adopted as a reference textbook in specific PhD courses.
Giuseppe Carbone was born in Salerno in 1972. He got a degree cum laude as a mechanical engineer and a PhD degree in mechanical and civil engineering at the University of Cassino in 2000 and 2004, respectively. He is currently Assistant Professor at Laboratory of Robotics and Mechatronics (LARM) in Cassino. He is also Associate Editor ...
