The forthcoming Mikroniek issue, click here for a first impression, will appear on 1 July. It is in part dedicated to mechatronic system design & control, featuring a treatise on the transition from mechatronics authority to robotics excellence, and the design of a dynamically balanced flexure-based scanning mechanism. Reports cover the euspen Conference and Exhibition 2016, the LEO Robotics Congress 2016 and the 5th ASPE Spring Topical Meeting. To complete the variegated picture, other articles describe the sensor module assembly machine for a CERN detector upgrade, and simple design solutions for avoiding jamming.
