Offering current, comprehensive coverage, INDUSTRIAL ROBOTICS delivers a thorough introduction to the industry and a basic understanding of the subjects needed for starting a career in industrial robotics. It begins with a background on the history and development of industrial automation, then moves into subjects such as robot mechanical unit configurations, controller architecture, and general software structure. A general overview of programming and end-of-arm tooling is also provided. The first edition highlights three subjects not typically addressed in robotic texts -- industrial sensors, vision systems, and maintenance. Sensors and vision systems are the eyes, ears, and fingers of modern industrial automation and robot systems. Numerous general maintenance concepts are presented to help prepare students for entry into the job market. The text also covers the economic aspects of robots in the workplace as well as the issues of human/robot interfaces.
"This is a very worthwhile project that is overdue."
— Thomas Sturm, University of St. Thomas
