Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this course, students will have mastered the prinicples of systematically designing transmission systems and can classify and characterize different types of transmission systems. They will be able to identify and describe typical movements of working bodies, dimension selected transmission types to meet given kinematic requirements and design them under kinetostatic aspects.
