MEMS Sensor of Force
2020, Vol. 16, no. 1, pp. 85-92
The paper is focused on the design of a compact compliant mechanical body (CCMB) that will be used as a transducer of the one-axis force to the distance of two plates. The conversion principle of the distance (which carries information about the acting force) to the frequency of the electrical signal is carefully described in the article too.

Verifying the Performance Characteristics of the (micro) Robotic Devices
2020, Vol. 16, no. 1, pp. 161-172
The paper is focused to design, simulation and modeling of the compact compliant structures widely used in construction of robotic devices. As the illustrative example it is proposed mechanism for reduction of motion, which enables to improve the accuracy of the positioning system. The physical model is fabricated by 3D printing technology. Its proposed performance characteristics are verified by measurement on the experimental test bed by using laser distance sensors and image sensing/processing technology.
