The Mechanisms and Robotics Conference has traditionally provided a vigorous and stimulating international forum for the exchange of technical and scientific information on the theory and practice of mechanical systems. The topical coverage has spanned areas central to mechanical systems including design (novel mechanisms and robots and synthesis), analysis (kinematics, dynamics, computational approaches, and software systems), applications including micro air vehicles, modular robotics, origami applications, medical robotics, and exoskeleton-assistive systems, and educational practices.

This 3rd IDETC Special Issue, containing 19 papers from researchers in seven countries on three continents, seeks to capture the exciting research, emerging topics, and latest results from the 40th ASME Mechanisms and Robotics (M&R) conference in archival format. We hope readers will find this Special Issue interesting and informative as we have attempted to showcase the richness and diversity across the various symposia of M&R 2016. As our editorial work comes...
