Topological Synthesis of Fully Decoupled Parallel Manipulators by Screw Formulation of Jacobian Matrix
A family of spherical parallel mechanisms which have fully decoupled motions is presented in this paper. The condition required for synthesizing the fully decoupled parallel mechanism is derived from the screw formulation of Jacobian matrix. According to this condition, several novel decoupled spherical parallel mechanisms are obtained. The decoupled motions are validated by the simulation of the prototype of spherical parallel mechanism.
