The fields of control and robotics are now at an advanced level of maturity both in theory and practice. Numerous systems are used effectively in industrial production and other sectors of modern life. This volume contains a well-balanced collection of over fifty papers focusing on analysis and design problems. The current trends and advances in the fields are reflected.Topics covered include: system analysis, identification and stability; optimal, adaptive, robust and QFT controller design; design and application of driving simulators; industrial robots and telemanipulators; mobile, service, and legged robots; virtual reality in robotics.The book brings together important original results derived from a variety of academic and engineering environments. Also, it serves as a timely reference volume for the researcher and practitioner.
