  2. Mechanical Logic in Three-Dimensional Space

    By Gennaro Auletta

    The book explores how build a mechanical inferences by making use of arithmetic operations on a string of numbers representing statements. In this way logic is reduced to a branch of the combinatory calculus. It covers the field of traditional logic by showing that any kind of inference can be...

  6. Parallel Robots

    Mechanics and Control

    By Hamid D. Taghirad

    Parallel structures are more effective than serial ones for industrial automation applications that require high precision and stiffness, or a high load capacity relative to robot weight. Although many industrial applications have adopted parallel structures for their design, few textbooks...

  9. Creation of a Conscious Robot

    Mirror Image Cognition and Self-Awareness

    By Junichi Takeno

    Present-day computers lack well-defined functions to accept various kinds of sensual information such as vision, hearing, and smelling (binding problem). Computers also lack any well-defined mechanisms to coordinate various behaviors in the presence of an object (conscious mechanism). This book...
