This three-part lecture series was given by legendary retiring Joseph C. Ford Professor of Mechanical Engineering Francis Moon on the topic of kinetics as it relates to robotics on June 10, 2011, at Cornell University.

Professor Moon makes extensive use of the Reuleaux's models in this lecture, as well as giving an in depth review of KMODDL: Cornell's online museum of Kinematics. Reuleaux was the first to propose that you could deconstruct any machine into a set of kinematic mechanisms.
