Paper Title:
Simulation and Analysis of a Masticatory Robot Based on Biological Structure
  Abstract

To meet the demand of the food texture analysis, dental training, speech therapy and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) research, a device is required to enable the reproduction of human chewing behaviour accurately. Based on the biological structure of masticatory system, this paper presented a robotic model for human chewing system in Solidworks, and analyzed the kinematics character for the masticatory robot via ADAMS. Results have showed that the robotic model is proper to reproduce the human chewing behaviour.
