Abstract

For many fully parallel robots, the number of legs is generally equal to the number of degrees of freedom, with one actuated joint per leg. However, another subset of robots exists in which there are fewer legs and more actuated joints per leg. This paper presents a method of mounting rotary actuators on the fixed platform such that no actuator mass is added to the moving links. Examples of 6-DOF parallel robot variants are given based on this technique, with inverse kinematics, and the scope of extensibility to other topologies is briefly described.
