This book describes a unified framework for networked teleoperation systems involving multiple research fields: networked control systems for linear & nonlinear forms, bilateral teleoperation, trilateral teleoperation, multilateral teleoperation & cooperative teleoperation. It closely examines networked control as a field at the intersection of systems & control & robotics & presents a number of experimental case studies on testbeds for robotic systems, including networked haptic devices, robotic network systems & sensor network systems. The concepts & results outlined are easy to underst&, even for readers fairly new to the subject. As such, the book offers a valuable reference work for researchers & engineers in the fields of systems & control & robotics.
