IJMRS is a multidisciplinary journal publishing in all areas of mechanisms and robotic technologies. It covers novel design concepts, theories and methodologies, together with a diversity of application fields including: machine tools, vehicle simulators, medical robots, microrobots, pick-and-place robots, cable robots, reconfigurable/modular robots, bio-inspired robots, flexible robots, mobile robots, humanoid robots and related applications.
Topics covered include
- Design theory and approaches
- Innovative mechanisms
- Mathematical and computational issues
- Kinematics and dynamics
- Performance mapping and optimisation
- Reconfiguration and sustainability
- Hardware and systems
- Intelligent robotic instrumentation and measurement
- Motion planning and control
- Human-robot interfaces
- Perception and machine learning
- Robotic machine tools and manufacturing systems
- Micro- and nano-robotics
- Flexible/compliant/hybrid/bio-inspired robots
The rapid development of integrated mechanisms and robotics technologies has made a significant contribution in modern industry. It is expected that the progress of mechanism research and robotic systems will play an important role in changing the technical world and even the daily life of human beings in the 21st century. The objectives of IJMRS are to establish an effective channel of communication between scholars, academic and research institutions, industries, policy makers and government agencies concerned with mechanisms and robotic systems.
IJMRS provides a forum to help professionals, academics, students, researchers and policy makers who work on any topic of mechanisms and robotic systems to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work.
IJMRS publishes original papers, review papers, technical reports and case studies. Special Issues devoted to important topics in related fields will occasionally be published.
