Kinematic design of a reconfigurable deployable canopy
A reconfigurable and deployable mechanism is proposed for a canopy which can also be used as a tent or a semi-open structure. The proposed single degree-of-freedom mechanism has four as-sembly modes. The conditions for ...
Function synthesis of Bennett 6R mechanisms using Chebyshev approximation
This study focuses on approximate function synthesis of the three types of overconstrained Bennett 6R mechanisms using Chebyshev approximation. The three mechanisms are the double-planar, double-spherical and the plano-spherical ...
Trajectory planning of redundant planar mechanisms for reducing task completion duration
In the industry there is always a demand to shorten the task completion durations in order to maximize the efficiency of the operation. This work aims to provide a solution to minimize the task completion duration for ...
