We are happy to announce the launching of a new IEEE Robotics and Automation
Society Technical Committee on Mechanisms and Design.
The TC seeks to bring together researchers with interest in innovative
mechanical hardware in robotic systems in order to share knowledge,
standardize practices/procedures, and raise the profile of the exciting new
work being done in robot mechanisms and design. Additionally, we seek to
establish strong ties to the robotics and robotic components industries to
facilitate technology transfer, educate researchers on new available
technologies, approaches, and standards, and help anchor research approaches
to commercial needs and market viability.
The TC is actively seeking new members (there are 110 founding members) and
participation in the TC community through the sponsoring of workshops,
tutorials, organized sessions, special issues, or other activities that will
be of interest to the Robot Mechanisms and Design community.
Please go to the TC webpage (http://www.robotmechanisms.org) for more
information about the TC and its leadership.
We look forward to your involvement in strengthening this vital and vibrant
portion of the robotics community.
- Co-Chairs Aaron Dollar (Yale University), Kyujin Cho (Seoul
National University), Claudio Semini (Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia), and
Matei Ciocarlie (Columbia University)
