My interest is in mechatronic systems with remarkable behavior and their applications. In particular I am interested in those mechanisms that effect or are affected in a special way by interaction with their environment, called Interactive Mechanisms. A long term goal is to establish Distributed Mechatronics, where motion, actuation and sensing are distributed along a compliant structure, with a high level of function integration, trending towards small length scales. To reach this goal, we focus on the development of new technology, methods and techniques, such as static balancing, dynamic balancing, compliant mechanisms, parallel kinematics, self-adaptability, distributed actuation and sensing. Applications fields include precision engineering and mechatronics, robotics, rehabilitation engineering, high-tech industry, MEMS.
