Robotics and Flexible Automation Systems
In previous chapters various aspects of robotics have been studied in detail. Some problems, specific for the application of robotic systems in complex flexible manufacturing, not only in a stand-alone work cell, are also outlined. Awareness that robot ought to be considered as an element of complex automation has been recognized throughout this book.
