Omni-directional is used to describe the ability of a system to move instantaneously in any direction from any configuration. Omnidirectional robotic platforms have vast advantages over a conventional design in terms of mobility in congested environments. They are capable of easily performing tasks in environments congested with static and dynamic obstacles(More)
A wearable device is proposed for the purpose of practical rehabilitation of temporomandibular disorder (TMD). The three-dimensional movement of the jaw is simplified as moving in the two-dimensional sagittal plane. The normal jaw motion is specified in terms of incisor trajectory and condylar trajectory, the former being used to synthesize the mechanism(More)
This paper examines the ability of a test subject to correctly interpret an incoming sensory signal through a haptic interface. A vibrotactile armband was used to do this consisting of four vibration motors. The success of interpretation is compared as the number of sensory signals is increased to a maximum of four. These senses simulated in the tests are(More)
In today’s manufacturing community, flexible manufacturing systems (FMS) are becoming important. There is a global trend towards flexible manufacturing systems with an increasing number of countries competing for a share of the world market. FMS are increasingly required for companies to meet the demand for high quality, reasonably priced products. FMS(More)
This paper analyzes the adoption of Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies in Sweden. The dataset consists of a recent and representative sample of Swedish AM users (companies, universities, and research institutes). The authors investigate two questions. Firstly, what are the current applications of AM in Sweden (e.g. Rapid Prototyping (RP), production)?(More)
