Fundamental Design and Automation Technologies in Offshore Robotics introduces technological design, modelling, stability analysis, control synthesis, filtering problem and real time operation of robotics vehicles in offshore environments.
The book gives numerical and simulation results in each chapter to reflect the engineering practice yet demonstrate the focus of the developed analysis and synthesis approaches. The book is ideal to be used as a reference book for senior and graduate students. It is written in a way that the presentation is simple, clear, and easy to read and understand which would be appreciated by graduate students. Researchers working on marine vehicles and robotics would be able to find reference material on related topics from the book.
The book could be of a significant interest to the researchers within offshore and deep see society, including both academic and industrial parts.
- Provides a series of latest results in, including but not limited to, motion control, robotics, and multi-vehicle systems towards offshore environment
- Presents recent advances of theory, technological aspects, and applications of robotics in offshore environment
- Offers a comprehensive and up-to-date references, which plays an indicative role for further study of the reader
Mechatronics engineers working on robotics and vehicles design; control engineers working on vehicle control systems; mechanical engineers working on vehicle systems; mathematicians and physicians working on complex dynamics; and postgraduate students majoring in mechatronics, control engineering, mechanical engineering, and applied mathematics
