Types Synthesis of Redundant Actuation Parallel Robot
Redundant parallel robots have been under increasing developments from a theoretical view point as well as for practical applications. Compared with the traditional parallel manipulators, they have such merits of more load, faster speed and higher accuracy. The method about how to build up redundant actuation parallel robot is introduced. Considering that the kinematic joint and limb are basic elements to constitute a proper parallel robot mechanism, special Plücker coordinates is adopted to describe the displacements of the output link of a limb or the robot mechanism. Then the principle for design of the redundant actuation parallel robot mechanisms is presented and example of the 2RRR&2PP parallel robot mechanism is brought forth and analyzed by this method.
