Analysis of Mechanical Error’s Effect on the Measurement Accuracy of the Six-Axis Force Sensor
Force sensor based on the six degree of freedom (6-DoF) Stewart platform is universal for wide applications. Mechanism errors are significant for its measuring accuracy. However, because of the multi-variables and the complicated forms, it is difficult to solve the expression directly. The Monte Carlo method is proposed based on the analysis of the system structure and the mathematical model. The effect of mechanism errors on the measurement accuracy was assessed. With this method, a complex accuracy expression of the sensor could be avoided. It also provided a theoretical basis for designing the sensor of the Stewart platform.
