About this series
Since a few decades, parallel robots have attracted the attention of industrials and researchers. For industrials, they are interesting due to their inherent advantages which are their large payload-to-mass ratio, intrinsic stiffness properties and great acceleration capacities. For researchers, their inherent complexity leading to issues in terms of design, modelling and control allowed the definition of many interesting scientific problems to be solved. We reached now a point where the research on parallel robots has led to the definition of a quantity of scientific results which, for the moment, miss to be compiled to be easily usable by researchers, teachers, professionals and students for their formation and future works. This collection aims at filling this gap, by proposing a series of book devoted to all the scientific and technological fields required for having a better understanding of the behavior of parallel robots and/or for helping the future parallel robot designer in his work. Therefore, we intend to cover all topics on parallel robots, from their (geometric, kinematic, dynamic, elastic, etc.) modelling, to their advanced control, by also considering the singularity analysis, the calibration and model parameter identification problems, the definition of advanced algebraic tools necessary for their study, their optimal design, and many other scientific and technological aspects.
