IFToMM World Congress 2023 bestows three different categories of Best Paper Awards as below.
Best Research Paper Award
The IFToMM Best Research Paper Award recognizes an exceptionally significant achievement in any of IFToMM areas. The achievement must be an important advance upon which subsequent work has been built or is expected to be built. It may be an invention, an experimental finding, a theoretical development, or a methodological or software framework.
- Design and Prototyping of BiSoft.Q, A 3-D Printed Bi-directional Deformable Actuator
Giovanni Colucci, Simone Duretto, Giuseppe Quaglia
- Nonsmooth Dynamic Modeling of Spatial Multibody Systems with Spherical Clearance Joints on the Special Euclidean Group
Long Li, Shengnan Lyu , Xilun Ding
- AI for Innovation Design of Tensegrity Mobile Robot
Xincui Shi, Qi Yang, Binbin Lian, Tao Sun
Best Application Paper Award
The IFToMM Best Application Paper Award recognizes an exceptionally significant application in any of IFToMM areas. The application must be an important advance that has been realized with outstanding results in a practical implementation. It may be a methodology, a technique, a design solution, an experiment and/or a software framework that has/have been validated on real system(s), showing impressive performance.
- Optimal Synthesis and Experimental Validation of a Bio-inspired Variable Stiffness Universal Compliant Joint for Continuum Robots
Elie Gautreau, Xavier Bonnet, Med Amine Laribi
- Design of Walking Rehabilitation Device Using Planar Link Mechanism and Pneumatic Rubber Artificial Muscle
Jun Nango, Kotaro Endo, Shota Yamaguchi, Takumi Sato, Hiroki Tomori
- Customization of 3D-Printed Hinged Ankle-Foot Orthosis Based on Kinematic Evaluation from Motion Capture
Carlo De Benedictis, Maria Paterna, Alessia Dipalma,Martina Piazzolla, Daniela Maffiodo, Walter Franco, Carlo Ferraresi
Best Student Paper Award
The IFToMM Best Student Paper Award Recognizes an exceptionally significant achievement of a student-based work in any of IFToMM areas. The achievement must be an important result of student work upon which subsequent work has been built or is expected to be built. It may be a result of a young author (preferably a student) alone or a result of a team in which one or more young authors had an essential role.
- Total Least Squares In-Field Identification for MEMS-Based Triaxial Accelerometers
Massimo Duchi, Federico Zaccaria, Sébastien Briot, Edoardo Idá
- Dynamics and Computed Torque Control Stability of an Under-Actuated Tendon-Driven Manipulator
Nicolas J. S. Testard, Christine Chevallereau, Philippe Wenger
- An Overconstrained Vertical Darboux Mechanism
Johannes Siegele, Martin Pfurner
