This proceedings present state-of-the-art research findings in robotics and mechatronics in the 78 articles by authors from 15 countries throughout five continents. Major topics of the papers are in parallel manipulators, bio-inspired robotics, mobile robotics, locomotion and gait planning, sensors and sensing systems, actuators and drive mechanisms, compliant mechanisms, and motion tracking and localization. All papers have been rigorously reviewed by at least two international peer reviewers, and are organized into a 3-day conference with 14 technical sessions held from 2 to 4 October 2013 in Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
It is intended that the ISRM 2013 Proceedings will be a valuable source of reference for research and development in the rapid growing area of robotics and mechatronics.
Readership: Researchers, engineers and practitioners in the field of robotics and mechatronics.
