Virtual prototyping for robot controllers
Production of a new mechanism involves design, manufacturing and testing phases. In order to achieve shorter turn-around times, researchers have studied methods of shortening these phases. Today, structural tests and ...
Polyhedral linkages obtained as assemblies of planar link groups
The study aims to devise means of obtaining polyhedral linkages for homothetic deployment of polyhedral shapes by embedding planar link groups in faces of the polyhedral shape of interest. The questions of which polyhedral ...
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 ...
Function generation with two loop mechanisms using decomposition and correction method
Method of decomposition has been successfully applied to function generation with multi-loop mechanisms. For a two-loop mechanism, a function y = f(x) can be decomposed into two as w = g(x) and y = h(w) = h(g(x)) = f(x). ...
Geometrical analysis of a continuously variable transmission system designed for human-robot interfaces
New robotic systems are placed out of their constrained workspaces in order to work alongside humans. Consequently, these applications call for robots monitoring and regulating physical human-robot interaction. These robots’ ...
