This book contains papers on a wide range of topics in the area of kinematics, mechanisms, robotics, and design, addressing new research advances and innovations in design education. The content is divided into five main categories headed aHistorical Perspectivesa, aKinematics and Mechanismsa, aRobotic Systemsa, aLegged Locomotiona, and aDesign Engineering Educationa. Contributions take the form of survey articles, historical perspectives, commentaries on trends on education or research, original research contributions, and papers on design education. This volume celebrates the achievements of Professor Kenneth Waldron who has made innumerable and invaluable contributions to these fields in the last fifty years. His leadership and his pioneering work have influenced thousands of people in this discipline.... the Omnicopter MAV has two configurations, the fixed 900 ducted fan angle configuration and the variable angle ducted fan configuration. ... 3.1 Dynamic Model Modeling the Omnicopter as a rigid-body, using Newtonian mechanics, let I E Ix, Iy, IZ denote the inertial frame, and ... 2 Free-body diagram 6(1), 11(1) v f, Q . .
