COPacabana: Ein modularer paralleler Seilroboter

Due to their use of modular components, cable-driven parallel robots are prime candidates for use as reconfigurable robotic manipulators. Reconfiguration comprises both the change of the geometry as well as topological changes such as adding or …

On Kinetostatics and Workspace Analysis of Multi-Platform Cable-Driven Parallel Robots with Unlimited Rotation

Cable-driven parallel robots are a special kind of parallel mechanism which use cables instead of rigid prismatic actuators to control a single platform. This paper presents a modeling approach to replace the single platform by multiple platforms. …

A Unified Approach to Forward Kinematics for Cable-Driven Parallel Robots Based on Energy

This paper deals with a unified approach to forward kinematics for both over-constrained and under-constrained cable robots. Moreover, little assumptions on the cable model are required. This makes the proposed method applicable to a variety of …

Design, Implementation and Long-Term Running Experiences of the Cable-Driven Parallel Robot CaRo Printer

Additive manufacturing has attracted a lot of attention in the recent years as it allows to effectively manufacture objects with complex shape in batch size one. Extrusion-based additive processes employ manipulators, such as robots, to move the …

Static Analysis of a Two-Platform Planar Cable-Driven Parallel Robot with Unlimited Rotation

Comparing cable-driven parallel robots (short CDPRs or cable robots) with conventional parallel mechanisms, CDPRs have advantages in terms of flexibility, dynamics, and workspace size. In general, the rotational capabilities of parallel mechanisms …

Improved Modeling of Kinematics and Dynamics of Cables for Use in Cable-Driven Parallel Robots

Cable-driven parallel robots make use of elastic cables for force and motion transmission from the driving winches to the mobile platform. The system is inherently susceptible to transversal cable vibration stemming from jerky motion of the platform …
