Springer's Women in Engineering

June 23, 2018 is International Women in Engineering Day. In honor of this day, we asked our authors & editors to share their experiences as women in the engineering fields. Read on to find out why these women became engineers, what advice they offer to women looking to join the field & explore research by and on women in STEM.

Robotics Article Highlights

Musculoskeletal lower-limb robot driven by multifilament musclesMusculoskeletal lower-limb robot driven by multifilament muscles 

This paper presents a redundant musculoskeletal robot using thin McKibben muscles that is based on human anatomy. The purpose of this robot is to achieve motions and characteristics that are very similar to a human body. We use a thin McKibben muscle, which is compliant and flexible, as the actuator of a musculoskeletal robot...

Design of a passive, iso-elastic upper limb exoskeleton for gravity compensationDesign of a passive, iso-elastic upper limb exoskeleton for gravity compensation

An additional mechanical mechanism for a passive parallelogram-based exoskeleton arm-support is presented. It consists of several levers and joints and an attached extension coil spring. The additional mechanism has two favourable features. On the one hand it exhibits an almost iso-elastic behaviour...

Mobile robots exploration through cnn-based reinforcement learningMobile robots exploration through cnn-based reinforcement learning 

Exploration in an unknown environment is an elemental application for mobile robots. In this paper, we outlined a reinforcement learning method aiming for solving the exploration problem in a corridor environment. The learning model took the depth image from an RGB-D sensor as the only input...

Remote temperature monitoring device using a multiple patients-coordinator set design approachRemote temperature monitoring device using a multiple patients-coordinator set design approach

This paper aims to develop a prototype for a web-based wireless remote temperature monitoring device for patients. This device uses a patient and coordinator set design approach involving the measurement, transmission, receipt and recording of patients’ temperatures via the MiWi wireless network...

A soft stretchable bending sensor and data glove applicationsA soft stretchable bending sensor and data glove applications

Soft sensors are required to accommodate the flexible and deformable natures of the human body in wearable device applications. They are also suitable for integration with soft robotic devices to monitor the performance status and provide references for feedback control...

AprilTag array-aided extrinsic calibration of camera–laser multi-sensor systemAprilTag array-aided extrinsic calibration of camera–laser multi-sensor system 

This paper presents a new algorithm for extrinsically calibrating a multi-sensor system including multiple cameras and a 2D laser scanner. On the basis of the camera pose estimation using AprilTag, we design an AprilTag array as the calibration target and employ a nonlinear optimization to calculate the single-camera extrinsic parameters when multiple tags are in the field of view of the camera...
