This book systematically introduces the bionic nature of force sensing and control, the biomechanical principle on mechanism on force generation and control of skeletal muscle, and related applications in robotic exoskelton. This book mainly covers three aspects: skeletal muscle force generation principle and biomechanical model, exoskeleton robot technology based on skeletal muscle biomechanical model, and SMA based bionic skeletal muscle technology. This comprehensive and in-depth book presents the author's research experience and achievements of many years to readers, so as to promote academic exchanges in this field.
