The purpose of this course is to teach students to 1) correctly apply basic kenmatic terms adn concepts, 2) anaylyze the kinematics of mechanisms and 3) models of non-idealities such as friction. Multiple aspects of mechanism will be analyzed throguh several techniques. Important mechanism characteristics such as their singularities and non-ideal behavior wil be simulated using software.
