Geometric Fundamentals of Robotics provides an elegant introduction to the geometric concepts that are important to applications in robotics. This second edition is still unique in providing a deep understanding of the subject: rather than focusing on computational results in kinematics and robotics, it includes significant state-of-the art material that reflects important advances in the.

Modular robotics - conceptual design and geometry optimization by Mitchell G. Lipton Download PDF EPUB FB2

The objective of our ongoing research in the area of “mechanical design of modular robots” is to develop an inventory of basic modular units, which will allow a user to configure the most suitable robot geometry for a task (or a set of tasks) at by: This book aims to capture the state-of-art research developments in the subject area of engineering creative design in robotics and mechatronics, and to provide relevant theoretical knowledge in the field, technological evolution, and new findings.

This book includes 17 chapters, divided into four sections. Greetings We’re Modular Robotics. Modular Robotics is home to humans who design, engineer, and test tiny robots.

Everyday we work to build robot construction systems for kids because we believe that toys shape the way children think about the world. Our goal is to create remarkably fun play experiences that impart intuitive understanding of complex systems and design thinking. This paper discusses the concept and parameter design of a Robust Stair Climbing Compliant Modular Robot, capable of tackling stairs with overhangs.

Modifying the geometry of the periphery of the wheels of our robot helps in tackling overhangs. Along with establishing a concept design, robust design parameters are set to minimize performance variation. 12 Design Optimization in Industrial Robotics As is widely recognized, engineering design is an iterative process where new design proposals are generated and evaluated, see [14], [49], [55], and [64].

According to Roosenburg and Eekels [55] the iterative part of the design process consists of synthe-sis, simulation, evaluation, and decision.

In the case of an open chain robot such as the industrial manipulator of Figure (a), all of its joints are independently actuated. This is the essen-tial idea behind the degrees of freedom of a robot: it is the sum of all the independently actuated degrees of freedom of the joints.

The scopes of the chapter cover the definition and classifications of modular robots; past and present research efforts in modular reconfigurable robots for the industry; basic modular design method including mechanical and interface issues; modular robot representation schemes for classifications and modeling; automatic model-generation techniques, kinematics, dynamics, and calibration; task-based configuration optimization; modular robot software.

This paper presents a multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO) framework for automated design of a modular industrial robot. The developed design framework seamlessly integrates high level computer aided design (CAD) templates (HLCt) and physics based high fidelity models for automated geometry manip-ulation, dynamic simulation, and structural strength analysis.

Abstract. Modular robots consist of standards units such as joints, links, and end effectors that can be efficiently configured into the most suitable manipulator geometry for a given (multi-operation) task.

The fundamental difference between current (standard) industrial robots and modular robots lies on the design approach by: Modular design is an attempt at getting both the gains of standardization (high volume normally equals low manufacturing costs) and the gains of customization.

The concept of modularity can provide the necessary foundation for organizations to design products that can respond rapidly to market needs and allow the changes in product design to. An optimization case is conducted to visualize the automation capabilities of the proposed framework, and enhance the design for modular industrial robots.
