Based on a selection of speeches from the 2009 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Biomimetics, this reference presents cutting-edge research in the field. The 16 chapters, rewritten from the speeches to include extra detail and analysis, cover robotic design, micro/nano robots for bio-systems and biomedicine, and biological measurement and actuation. A section on cybernetics is included as well. Written for graduate students and researchers in control engineering and robotics, this text helps the reader understand research trends and future development of bio-robotics and biologically inspired robot design. It includes a wealth of figures and hundreds of equations.
