Prof. Anthony Bloch of the University of Michigan is a leading scholar and contributor to the fields of geometric mechanics and control of mechanical systems with symmetry, including as co-author of an influential graduate textbook on nonholonomic mechanics and control. This AMR audio interview features his personal recollections of a wonderful story of fundamental discovery in dynamics and control, scientific friends and collaborators, the growth of a technical community, and remarkable connections between applications of engineering dynamics and the mathematics of symmetry and constraints.
The ASME Journal of Mechanisms and Robotics publishes research contributions to the fundamental theory, algorithms and applications for robotic and machine systems.
The ASME Journal of Mechanisms and Robotics publishes research contributions to the fundamental theory, algorithms, design, manufacture and experimental validation for mechanisms and robots. The current scope of the journal includes topics in theoretical and applied kinematics, mechanism synthesis and design, analysis and design of robot manipulators, hands, and legs, soft robotics, compliant mechanisms, origami and folded robots, printed robots, and haptic devices. The journal is also interested in novel fabrication, actuation and control techniques for mechanisms and robotics, bio-inspired approaches to mechanism and robot design, and the mechanics and design of micro- and nano-scale devices.
