Humanoid Robots: New Developments
by Armando Carlos de Pina Filho
Publisher: InTech 2007
Number of pages: 582
For many years, the human being has been trying, in all ways, to recreate the complex mechanisms that form the human body. The researchers not only intended to create humanoid robots, but also, in some way, to offer a higher knowledge of the systems that form the human body, objectifying possible applications in the technology of rehabilitation of human beings, gathering in a whole studies related not only to Robotics, but also to Biomechanics, Biomimmetics, Cybernetics, among other areas. This book presents a series of researches inspired by this ideal, carried through by various researchers worldwide, looking for to analyze and to discuss diverse subjects related to humanoid robots.
