Handling Engineering

Focuses on mechanics and technologies in object handling. Mechnical contacts among devices (grippers, hands, and fingers and so on) and operated objects are the key to robotic manipulation. Handling engineering will provide mechnical modeling techniques on contact, friction, impact, and deformation as well as technogogies for object handling including friction drive, remote center compliance, indirect simultaneous positioning, and visual sensing.
