Mechanism design for haptic handwriting assistance device
One of the applications of haptic technology is in education and training. Handwriting for first year-elementary students has been included in the curriculum for some years in Turkey as the first and only writing skill to ...
Synthesis and experiments of inherently balanced umbrella canopy designs
(Makina Teorisi Derneği, 2015-06-14)
This paper shows how umbrella canopies and umbrella canopy-like mechanisms can be designed inherently balanced. Inherently balanced means that the center of mass of the moving parts remains stationary at a single point for ...
Trajectory planning for a redundant planar laser-cutting machine with macro-micro manipulation
Kinematic redundancy in robots provide the control designer with infinite number of possibilities for improving the process for a selected target optimization criterion. A special type of kinematic redundancy is devised ...
Function generation synthesis of spherical 5R mechanism with regional spacing and Chebyshev approximation
The Chebyshev approximation is well known to be applicable for the approximation of single input–single output functions by means of a function generator mechanism. The approximation method may be also applied to multi-input ...
Motion synthesis of a planar Watt II type six-bar mechanism with two end-effectors
The study deals with motion generation with closed-loop mechanisms with several end-effectors. As a case study a single degree-of-freedom planar Watt II type six-bar mechanism with two end-effectors is worked on. Dyad ...
Use of hidden robot concept for calibration of an over-constrained mechanism
Overconstrained mechanisms prove useful in applications where high stiffness and low weight is required against high amount of forces while keeping high precision. This study issues a planar two degrees-of-freedom ...
