This is the first book of robotics presenting solutions of uncoupled and fully-isotropic parallel robotic manipulators and a method for their structural synthesis. Part 1 presents the methodology proposed for structural synthesis. Part 2 presents the various topologies of parallel robots generated by this systematic approach. Many solutions are presented here for the first time. The book will contribute to a widespread implementation of these solutions in industrial products.
This is the first book of robotics presenting solutions of uncoupled and fully-isotropic PMs and a method for their structural synthesis. Non-redundant/redundant, overconstrained/isostatic solutions of uncoupled and fully-isotropic PMs with elementary/complex legs actuated by linear/rotary actuators with/without idle mobility and two to six DoFs are present in a systematic approach of structural synthesis. These solutions are derived from families of PMs with decoupled motions.
