Summary Describes proven mechanisms and mechanical devices. Each illustration represents a design concept that can be recycled for use in new or modified mechanical, electromechanical, or mechatronic products. It contains chapters on mechanisms for converting renewable energy into electrical power, 3D digital prototyping and simulation, progress in MEMS and nanotechnology based on carbon nanotubes, and stationary and mobile robots and their roles in industry, science, national defense, and medicine. The latest advances in rapid prototyping are also discussed.
