Analytic Formulation for Kinematics, Statics, and Shape Restoration of Multibackbone Continuum Robots Via Elliptic Integrals

This paper presents a novel and unified analytic formulation for kinematics, statics, and shape restoration of multiple-backbone continuum robots. These robots achieve actuation redundancy by independently pulling and pushing three backbones to carry out a bending motion of two-degrees-of-freedom (DoF). A solution framework based on constraints of geometric compatibility and static equilibrium is derived using elliptic integrals. This framework allows the investigation of the effects of different external loads and actuation redundancy resolutions on the shape variations in these continuum robots. The simulation and experimental validation results show that these continuum robots bend into an exact circular shape for one particular actuation resolution. This provides a proof to the ubiquitously accepted circular-shape assumption in deriving kinematics for continuum robots. The shape variations due to various actuation redundancy resolutions are also investigated. The simulation results show that these continuum robots have the ability to redistribute loads among their backbones without introducing significant shape variations. A strategy for partially restoring the shape of the externally loaded continuum robots is proposed. The simulation results show that either the tip orientation or the tip position can be successfully restored. read more read less

A Pseudorigid-Body 3R Model for Determining Large Deflection of Cantilever Beams Subject to Tip Loads

Abstract:

In this paper, a pseudo-rigid-body (PRB) 3R model which consists of four rigid links joined by three revolute joints and three torsion springs is proposed for approximating the de∞ection of a cantilever beam subject to a general tip load.

In this paper, a pseudo-rigid-body (PRB) 3R model which consists of four rigid links joined by three revolute joints and three torsion springs is proposed for approximating the de∞ection of a cantilever beam subject to a general tip load. The large de∞ection beam equations are solved through numerical integration. A comprehensive atlas of the tip de∞ection for various load modes is obtained. A three-dimensional search routine has been developed to flnd the optimal set of characteristic radius factors and spring stifiness of the PRB 3R model. Detailed error analysis has been done by comparing with the pre-computed tip de∞ection atlas. Our results show that the approximation error is much less than that of the conventional PBR 1R model. The beneflts of the PRB 3R model include (a) load independence which is critical for analysis/synthesis applications where loads vary signiflcantly, (b) high accuracy for large de∞ection beams, and (c) explicit kinematic and static constraint equations which are simpler to solve compared with the flnite element model. To demonstrate the use of the PRB 3R model, a compliant 4-bar linkage is studied and verifled by a numerical example. The result shows a maximum tip de∞ection error of 1:2% compared with the FEA model. read more read less

The elliptic integral solution is often considered to be the most accurate method for analyzing large deflections of thin beams in compliant mechanisms. In this paper, a comprehensive solution based on the elliptic integrals is proposed for solving large deflection problems. By explicitly incorporating the number of inflection points and the sign of the end-moment load in the derivation, the comprehensive solution is capable of solving large deflections of thin beams with multiple inflection points and subject to any kinds of load cases. The comprehensive solution also extends the elliptic integral solutions to be suitable for any beam end angle. Deflected configurations of complex modes solved by the comprehensive solution are presented and discussed. The use of the comprehensive solution in analyzing compliant mechanisms is also demonstrated by examples. read more read less

On the Ability of a Cable-Driven Robot to Generate a Prescribed Set of Wrenches
Samuel Bouchard1, Clément Gosselin1, Brian Moore2

Abstract:

This paper presents a new geometry-based method to determine if a cable-driven robot operating in a d-degree-of-freedom workspace (2≤d≤6) with n≥d cables can generate a given set of wrenches in a given pose, considering acceptable minimum and maximum tensions in the cables. To this end, the fundamental nature of the available... This paper presents a new geometry-based method to determine if a cable-driven robot operating in a d-degree-of-freedom workspace (2≤d≤6) with n≥d cables can generate a given set of wrenches in a given pose, considering acceptable minimum and maximum tensions in the cables. To this end, the fundamental nature of the available wrench set is studied. The latter concept, defined here, is closely related to similar sets introduced by Ebert-Uphoff and co-workers (2004, “Force-Feasible Workspace Analysis for Underconstrained, Point-Mass Cable Robots,” IEEE Trans. Rob. Autom., 5, pp. 4956–4962; 2007, “Workspace Optimization of a Very Large Cable-Driven Parallel Mechanism for a Radiotelescope Application,” Proceedings of the ASME IDETC/CIE Mechanics and Robotics Conference, Las Vegas, NV). It is shown that the available wrench set can be represented mathematically by a zonotope, a special class of convex polytopes. Using the properties of zonotopes, two methods to construct the available wrench set are discussed. From the representation of the available wrench set, computationally efficient and noniterative tests are presented to verify if this set includes the task wrench set, the set of wrenches needed for a given task. read more read less

This paper presents a new joint coined as the rT joint and proposes two types of metamorphic parallel mechanisms assembled with this rT joint. In the first type, the mechanism changes its topology by turning the rT joints in all limbs into different configurations. This change in mobility is completed by two cases illustrated by a 3(rT)PS metamorphic parallel mechanism having variable mobility from 3 to 6 and a 3(rT)P(rT) parallel mechanism having various configurations including pure translations, pure rotations, and mobility 4. In the second type, a central strut with the rT joint is added in a parallel mechanism. The variable mobility of the mechanism results from the topological change of the central (rT)P(rT) strut. This is illustrated in a 3SPS-1 (rT)P(rT) metamorphic parallel mechanism, which changes its mobility from 4 to 5. It is demonstrated in mobility analysis that the change in local mobility of each limb results in the change in the platform mobility that a metamorphic process can be achieved. This particular analysis leads to advancement of improved Grubler-Kutzbach criterion by introducing the local mobility factor in the mobility analysis. read more read less

I spent hours with MS word for reformatting. It was frustrating - plain and simple. With SciSpace, I can draft my manuscripts and once it is finished I can just submit. In case, I have to submit to another journal it is really just a button click instead of an afternoon of reformatting.
