By Achim Schweikard, Floris Ernst

This ebook offers a radical historical past to the rising box of scientific robotics. It covers the maths had to comprehend using robot units in drugs, together with yet no longer restricted to robotic kinematics, hand-eye and robot-world calibration, reconstruction, registration, movement making plans, movement prediction, movement correlation, movement replication and movement studying. also, easy equipment in the back of state-of-the paintings robots just like the DaVinci method, the CyberKnife, motorized C-arms and working microscopes in addition to stereotactic frames are awarded. The publication is a textual content booklet for undergraduates in computing device technology and engineering.

The major inspiration of the publication is to inspire the tools in robotics in scientific functions instead of commercial purposes. The e-book then follows the traditional direction for a robotics textbook. it truly is hence appropriate for a primary path in robotics for undergraduates. it's the first textbook on scientific robotics.

We will soon see that the matrix representation is often preferable over the YPR-representation. The medical literature has its own naming conventions for rotations. 1 Relative Position and Orientation Suppose we replace the saw by a drill (see Fig. 4). The drill has its own coordinate system S. At the tip of the drill, we place a new coordinate system S . We have the position of S with respect to the base B. Now we would like to compute the position of S with respect to the base system B. Thus, suppose we have defined two matrices B M and S M .

31. Although we have taken care to reduce the number of elementary transformations, the matrix product is 48 2 Describing Spatial Position and Orientation not simple. However, having set up the rules for the placement of coordinate systems, we can arrive at a yet more compact description of a robot. We simply set up a table containing the parameters αi , ai , di , θi . 1. 1: DH-table i 1 2 .. αi α1 α2 .. ai a1 a2 .. di d1 d2 .. θi θ1 θ2 .. 1, can be applied to our three-joint robot. 2. 2: DH-table for the three-joint robot i αi ai di θi 1 −90 0 0 θ1 2 0 a2 0 θ2 3 90 0 0 θ3 G 0 0 d4 0 It should be noted that a number of special cases can arise when applying the DH-rules.

We see that we need a convention indicating the direction of rotation. We will do this next, after introducing conventions for rotations about fixed axes. 2 Angles An alternative way to describe the orientation of the object coordinate system S is to use angles. Thus in Fig. 3, we state that the saw’s coordinate system is rotated by an angle of 90◦ about the y-axis of the base. To describe an arbitrary orientation in space, we use the three angle values α , β , γ . They refer to rotations about the three axes x, y and z of the base coordinate system.
