About the book

This book presents research developments in the field of kinematics, mainly applications to different areas in robotics: different configurations and robots such as manipulators, mobiles, autonomous walkers, unmanned, drones among others. The book also includes research related to kinematics in the area of machine learning and deep learning in current applications of intelligent systems that help the development of new systems. Application to different optimization paradigms is presented such as kinematic control, fuzzy systems neural networks, genetic algorithms, navigation systems, trajectory and movement optimization, theoretical development, direct kinematics systems, reverse kinematics system, redundant systems, nonholonomic constraint systems, application development, all recent kinematics research are presented.

Several emerging technologies and developments different groups from universities, research and development centers, independent researchers are presented, which provide a comprehensive view of the current status and future trends of kinematics and its applications.

All the investigations related to the cinematic processes as well as the new technologies that help the growth and development of that area are received.
