The ASME Mechanisms and Robotics Committee operates under the auspices of the ASME Design Engineering Division. The mission of the Mechanisms and Robotics Committee is to promote advances in research and education in the theory, design and applications of mechanisms, machines, robots and mechatronic systems.

Areas of interest include: kinematics and dynamics of mechanisms; analysis of robotic systems; design of cams, gears, transmissions, and linkages; bio-inspired machines; mechatronics; medical devices; compliant mechanisms; and micro and nano machines.

Our flagship conference is the Mechanisms and Robotics Conference, which is the largest conference in the ASME International Design Engineering Technical Conferences (IDETC). The Journal of Mechanisms and Robotics is the central journal for this committee.  Our committee members are active representatives of the mechanisms and robotics community.
