The U.S. Army and MIT are exploring how metamaterials can help form modular robotic building blocks for transforming robots that can be reconfigured into different shapes and functions.
Optimizing a motion control system is not easy. There are many tradeoffs that need to be considered. The strategy needed for each situation tends to be unique based on the problem that is being considered. One strategy involves speed, torque and time. These three variables are a connected system that is defined as the mechanical […]
Materials and Mechatronics
A great scientist recently said that most of the new innovations in coming years would be in the materials science world. (Sorry I can’t remember the reference, or I would gladly give credit…) Seems like he may prove to be right. Organic LED materials and processes show the potential to replace the mainstream display technologies. […]
