The Mechanics of Mechanics Group is a multidisciplinary team specializing in robotics, mechatronics, mechanical design, and biomechanics. It combines expertise in engineering and applied sciences to solve complex problems, innovate, and train the next generation of engineers. This is a unique opportunity for students interested in these fields
Technical software and the ability to use technical equipment are essential components of an engineer’s skill set. By integrating these skills with the knowledge and skills acquired in the “Applied Mechanics of Machines group, well-trained and competitive young engineers are formed. This enables them to successfully meet the challenges of practise and research in industry, making the challenges even more exciting and interesting.
Computational software for model development and data processing.
Software suite for simulation of rigid-body or deformable-body dynamic systems.
High-resolution 3D printer for rapid prototyping of components and mechanisms.
Signal acquisition boards, real time controllers and very high frequency logic boards for axis control and acquisition of various kinds of measurements.
Software suite from National Instruments for NI hardware management and engineering software development.
Several high acquisition rate cameras (up to 500 fps), and related image processing hardware, suitable for visual servoing tasks and measurements by machine vision.
Software for modeling and structural analysis of components using the finite element method.
Pietrotronics PCB modal analysis kit, including triaxial accelerometer, instrumented hammer, amplifier and signal conditioner.
Commitment to projects is essential to ensure the development and funding of innovative, real, and tangible ideas. We see projects as bridges between theory and practice, academia and industry. They not only transform knowledge into concrete applications but also represent the essence of our mission, paving the way to new scientific frontiers.
The DRIM is a Doctorate of National Interest in Robotics and Intelligent Machines that aims to enhance Italian expertise in these fields. It brings together different lines of research and training, aiming to create a large community of students working in an integrated and multidisciplinary context. The goal is to consolidate Italy’s international position in robotics research and foster technological innovation.
