Northwestern University Posts FREE Modern Robotics Curriculum

“Kevin Lynch, professor at Northwestern University, and his co-author Frank Park have published the textbook “Modern Robotics: Mechanics, Planning, and Control” (Cambridge University Press, 2017), focusing on kinematics, dynamics, motion planning, and control of mobile robots and robot arms from a modern, screw-theoretic perspective. A preprint of the book, video lectures, and cross-platform software and simulation environment, all free, are available here.  There is also a six-course Coursera MOOC specialization covering the material. Learn more

BioFabUSA Events

“On December 6th, 2018 in New York City, ASME will be hosting a “Tissue Engineering Lexicon Work Session,” which will work to level set the TERM terminology and lexicon to build a common language that members of the tissue engineering community will use. The session will bring together the TERM industry and academic experts to determine fundamental definitions in order to overcome potential areas of miscommunication within multidisciplinary teams. Register for the Tissue Engineering Lexicon and Work Session now!”
