Moreover, related families of IPG- X s are also deducted by using the reordering or the commutation of the factor method, which yields more 5D subsets of displacements containing also the X -motion of the end effector. In that way, several novel...

... this paper is to formalize a new design methodology for cable-driven devices. Based on a total or partial decoupling between cable disposition and end-effector pose, this methodology allows us to achieve well-tailored design solutions for a given design requirement. The resulting systems are here defined...

... that an algorithm based on a classical curve, called the tractrix, leads to a more “natural” motion of the hyper-redundant robot with the displacements diminishing from the end-effector to the fixed base. In addition, since the actuators nearer the base “see” a greater inertia due to the links farther away, smaller...
