Description: This volume consists of a collection of papers arising from the 5th International Conference on Robotics – ROBOTICS 2010, which was held in Cluj-Napoca, from the 23rd to the 25th September, 2010, and was organized by the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, Department of Mechanisms, Precision Mechanics and Mechatronics, and the Romanian Society of Robotics (SRR).
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The presentations covered the topics of: Robotics; Mechanical design of robot architectures, Sensors and actuators in robotics; Mobile robots navigation and obstacle avoidance; Mechatronics; Industrial automation, process control, manufacturing processes and automation; Micro- and nano-robots, parallel robots; Artificial intelligence, intelligent control, neuro-control, fuzzy control and their applications; Control system modeling, simulation techniques and methodologies; Biomedical and rehabilitation engineering, prosthetics and artificial organs; Tele-operation, tele-robotics, haptics, and tele-operated semi-autonomous systems; Robotics for automobile production; Virtual reality. The book thus constitutes a timely overview of this important subject.

Description: Mechatronics can be defined as being the synergistic integration of mechanical engineering with electronics and intelligent computer control in the manufacture of products and design of processes. Advanced engineering materials and related technologies increasingly rely upon multifunctional materials, materials resistant to extreme conditions and hybrid and multi-materials.

The papers presented in this special issue, “Glass Science and its Applications”, cover the physics and chemistry of conventional glasses, sol gel glasses and glass ceramic materials as used in technological and biomedical applications; for example, the first paper describes the optimization of ormosil glasses for luminescence-based dissolved-oxygen sensor applications. Here, the main aim was to prepare and evaluate various sol gel film compositions in order to identify those most promising for oxygen sensing.

Description: The great majority of solid-state materials – natural as well as man-made ones – have a polycrystalline structure. They consist of crystallites having various sizes, shapes and crystallographic orientations. Because of the anisotropy of crystal properties, the material as a whole may also be anisotropic if the orientation distribution of the crystallites is not random. Furthermore, because of the differently oriented anisotropies of neighbouring crystals, the material is also micro-inhomogeneous. Macroscopic anisotropy and micro-inhomogeneity are thus fundamental properties of all polycrystalline materials. Therefore, the study of preferred crystal orientations, or crystallographic texture, is of major interest in research and industrial applications. Analysis of the crystal texture is now a well-established tool for quality control and failure analysis in industry, as well as in academic research, because of the ready availability of commercial equipment and refined computer programs.
