Moreover, applications of the robot arms are not limited to the industrial factory but expanded to living space or outer space. The robot arm is an integrated technology, and its technological elements are actuators, sensors, mechanism, control and system, etc. BT - Robot Arms SP - Ch. 5 UR - https://doi.org/10.5772/17460 DO - 10.5772/17460 SN - PB - IntechOpen CY - Rijeka Y2 - 2022-05-28 ER -
