About this book


This book is about automatic handling of non-rigid or deformable objects like cables, fabric, or foam rubber. The automation by robots in industrial environments, is especially examined. It discusses several important automation aspects, such as material modelling and simulation, planning and control strategies, collaborative systems, and industrial applications. This book collects contributions from various countries and international projects and, therefore, provides a representative overview of the state of the art in this field. It is of particular interest for scientists and practitioners in the area of robotics and automation
