robots has not only produced machines that are useful on uneven ground, for climbing walls, in dangerous or hostile environments, and in remote situations, but has also been responsible for some excellent engineering and
technological solutions in the field of responsive
or adaptive control.
Adaptive Neural Control of Walking Robots will be of interest to engineers and research establishments working on the practical or industrial application of climbing and walking robots. The book will also interest those
concerned with robot control systems, adaptive neural control, and applications of autonomous or programmable machine behaviour in multijointed
