  • First proceedings resulting from collaboration between the Technical Committee on Linkages and Mechanical Controls and the Technical Committee on Micromachines of the International Federation for the Promotion of Mechanism and Machine Science (IFToMM)
  • Provides a special opportunity for exchange of know-how and international collaboration in various disciplines related to microactuators and micromechanism technology
This book contains selected papers presented at MAMM 2010, the First Workshop on Microactuators and Micromechanisms. This workshop has brought together scientists, industry experts and students and has provided a special opportunity for know-how exchange and collaboration in various disciplines referring to microsystems technology. The conference was organized by the Technical Committees of Mechanical Transmissions and Micromachines under the patronage of IFToMM, the International Federation for the Promotion of Mechanism and Machine Science.
