The book 'Theory and Applications for Control of Aerial Robots in Physical Interaction Through Tethers' by Marco Tognon and myself is now published as a volume in the prestigious Springer Tracts in Advanced Robotics book series (STAR)!
The book stems from a research line that my former Ph.D. student Marco Tognon and I pursued from 2015 till 2019 and presents in a unified, organized, and self-contained way, all the most important theoretical discoveries and application-driven results that we obtained on modeling and control of flying robots connected to and interacting with a static or dynamic environment using cables or bars.
It doesn't happen often that a cohesive corpus of research results has the possibility to be nicely gathered in a book. I am very proud of Marco and the research we did together in the last years, which I believe totally deserved such a remarkable achievement.
Many thanks go of course to the Editors of the STAR series, the publisher, the funding agency/project (EC Aeroarms EU H2020) that sponsored the research, and all the LAAS-CNRS people who provided us a perfect environment for this research.
