Profile Synthesis of Prismatic-Prismatic Variable Joints for Use in Reconfigurable Mechanisms
Volume 5A: 42nd Mechanisms and Robotics Conference
Reconfigurable mechanisms provide increased flexibility in machine design and can be used in a variety of applications. Variable joints in reconfigurable mechanisms allow for machine designs that better optimize space and resources. This paper synthesizes the motion profiles of prismatic-prismatic higher variable joints based upon the configuration space approach. Variable joints enable the creation of Type II Mechanisms with Variable Topology, mechanisms whose topology changes due to changesdoi:10.1115/detc2018-86321 fatcat:yrm3qdsxtfd3jgczbwlthmptti
