This post’s subject are degrees of freedom (DOF). The concept in mechanics and how to calculate DOF in a mechanical system.
In this part about MEMS manufacturing, the subject is surface micromachining. A very different method from the one shown in previous part.
MEMS manufacturing is similar to process used to fabricate microelectronic circuits. The bulk micromachining is today’s subject.
The classical Ziegler-Nichols methods, introduced in 1942, are some of the most known and applied tuning methods for PID controllers.
NASA is developing a group of shape-changing explorer robots called Shapeshifter to explore Saturn’s moons.
Telepresence robots or robotic avatars are machines for communication and interaction with distant environments. Will be used in many areas and are this post’s subject.
MEMS are abbreviation of Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems, are miniaturized electromechanical machines. An introduction to MEMS and some of its applications are today’s subject.
This post’s subject is Kalman filter. It is a very useful tool in control systems, where there is no certainty in system’s information.
A robotic catheter moves along a pig’s heart to help surgeons.
In this post are shown theorems of superposition, Thévenin and Norton. Only DC circuits with resistors are used as examples.
