The Fourth International Symposium on Robotics Research was held in the summer of 1987 in Santa Cruz, California. This book collects 52 contributions by prominent researchers from Japan, Europe, and the United States. The topics covered include kinematics and dynamics, mobile robots, design and mechanisms, and perception.
