The Robots of the movies, such as C-3PO and the Terminator are portrayed as fantastic, intelligent, even dangerous forms of artificial life. However, robots of today are not exactly the walking, talking intelligent machines of movies, stories and our dreams. Today, we find most robots working for people in factories, warehouses, and laboratories. In the future, robots may show up in other places: our schools, our homes, even our bodies. The field of robotics has created a large class of robots can be used for more commonplace tasks such as janitorial work. Whereas robots were initially developed for dirty, dull, and dangerous applications, they are now being considered as personal assistants. Regardless of application, robots will require more rather than less intelligence, and will thereby have a significant impact on our society in the future as technology expands to new horizons.   This book explores this fascinating world of Robotics in a scientific cross disciplinary manner. It discusses the fundamental principles of robotics with a strong emphasis on engineering applications and industrial solutions based on robotics technology. The book has extensive coverage of the major robotic classifications, including Wheeled Mobile Robots, Legged Robots, and the Robotic Manipulator. It also provides an introduction to basic mechanics, kinematics, mathematical modeling, simulation and electronics relevant to robotics. It can be used by practicing engineers and scientists or as a text in standard university courses in robotics. It also contains source codes for various college level projects in field of Robotics.   Contents :   Introduction Basic Mechanics Basics Electronics Wheeled Mobile Robot Kinematics of Robotic Manipulator Classification of Sensors Legged Robots
