Über den Autor
The editor and the international members of the Program Committee have been working in the area of robotics and automation for many years. They gained experience in various fields of robotics and basically are working on control theory with applications to robotics for many years. In the proposed book we would like to inform the readers about recent developments in robot motion and control and their application in industry and various fields of everyday life which is not available elsewhere. The book is addressed to graduate and Ph.D. students of robotics and automation, informatics, mechatronics and production engineering systems, scientists and researchers working in the field of robotics and automation.

Robot Motion Control 2011 presents very recent results in robot motion and control. Forty short papers have been chosen from those presented at the sixth International Workshop on Robot Motion and Control held in Poland in June 2011. The authors of these papers have been carefully selected and represent leading institutions in this field.
The following recent developments are discussed:
Design of trajectory planning schemes for holonomic and nonholonomic systems with optimization of energy, torque limitations and other factors.
New control algorithms for industrial robots, nonholonomic systems and legged robots.
Different applications of robotic systems in industry and everyday life, like medicine, education, entertainment and others.
Multiagent systems consisting of mobile and flying robots with their applications
The book is suitable for graduate students of automation and robotics, informatics and management, mechatronics, electronics and production engineering systems as well as scientists and researchers working in these fields.
Presents the most recent results and developments in the field of robot motion and control
Covers nonlinear control of nonholonomic systems and legged robots as well as trajectory planning for these systems, expanding on work presented in previous proceedings from the same conference and not covered in other books.
