This monograph provides an up to date resource of data at the state-of-the-art in complicated keep an eye on of articulated and cellular robots. It contains suitable chosen difficulties facing stronger actuation, movement making plans and regulate features for articulated robots, in addition to of sensory and self sufficient selection services for cellular robots. the fundamental proposal at the back of the e-book is to supply a bigger group of robot researchers and builders with a competent resource of knowledge and cutting edge purposes within the box of keep an eye on of cooperating and cellular robots. This ebook is the end result of the study undertaking MISTRAL (Methodologies and Integration of Subsystems and applied sciences for Anthropic Robotics and Locomotion) funded in 2001-2002 by means of the Italian Ministry for schooling, college and examine. The thorough dialogue, rigorous remedy, and large span of the awarded paintings display the numerous advances within the theoretical origin and know-how foundation of the robotics box around the globe.
