Frank Park and I are pleased to announce the release of YouTube video
lectures accompanying the book "Modern Robotics:  Mechanics, Planning, and
Control," Cambridge University Press, 2017.

The lectures cover all topics in the book:  configuration space, rigid-body
motions, forward kinematics, velocity kinematics and statics, inverse
kinematics, kinematics of closed chains, dynamics of open chains,
trajectory generation, motion planning, robot control, grasping and
manipulation, and wheeled mobile robots.

The videos are designed to be succinct, typically 3-6 minutes each, and the
total run time for most chapters is 10-40 minutes.

Videos for chapters 2 through 7 are already posted, and remaining chapters
will be posted shortly.

You can access the videos through
