Herrera F.J., Acuña H.G., Lengerke O., Dutra M.S. (2012) Conceptual Design and Kinematic Analysis of a Parallel Rotational Robot. In: Su CY., Rakheja S., Liu H. (eds) Intelligent Robotics and Applications. ICIRA 2012. Lecture Notes in Computer Science, vol 7508. Springer, Berlin, Heidelberg
This paper presents the conceptual design and simulation of a rotational parallel robot. This robot is used to reproduce movement; the robot workspace, inverse kinematic study and a simulation of the system in a trajectory were analyzed. Computational tools were used to resolve equations, create a virtual design and conduct simulation in the conceptual design. The rotational parallel robot used 6 servomotors and 6 links with spherical joints that provide 360o rotational capabilities on its axis. This is a big flexibility in comparison with Stewart platform but the workspace is smaller than that of the Stewart platform.
