About the Author

Michael M. Stanisic earned his B.S.M.E., M.S.M.E., and Ph.D. degrees from Purdue University. Since 1988, he has taught and researched machine and manipulator design at the University of Notre Dame. He holds several patents on dextrous and singularity-free manipulator designs, which were developed with support from the National Science Foundation. He has also published a number of papers concerning the application of curvature theory to the synthesis of mechanisms and to the control of robotic manipulators. In collaboration with the J. Stefan Institute, Dr. Stanisic has developed new types of humanoid shoulder mechanisms that include effects of human scapular motion. He has served several terms on the Mechanisms Committee of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and has been a member of the International Scientific Committee for Advances in Robot Kinematics since 1988. At the University of Notre Dame, he has received numerous teaching awards at the departmental, college, and university-wide levels.


"I believe that the authors are doing an excellent job of paying attention to the audience. Considering that this text is meant for a junior level course, I particularly enjoy that there are sections where the authors are not holding the reader's hand throughout the discussion which will force the reader (student) to think about what exactly is going on. But when fundamental concepts are introduced, there is a very thorough explanation accompanied by detailed examples that would be useful for a student seeing the material for the very first time."
"The approach of using synthesis to motivate the study of analysis is meritorious. The vector loop and kinematic coefficient theory that is utilized throughout is modern and well suited to software implementation. This appeals to me as a user of such a text."
