Structural Synthesis of Parallel Robots

Part 1: Methodology


This is the first book of robotics presenting solutions of uncoupled and fully-isotropic parallel robotic manipulators and a method for their structural synthesis. Part 1 presents the methodology proposed for structural synthesis. Part 2 presents the various topologies of parallel robots generated by this systematic approach. Many solutions are presented here for the first time. The book will contribute to a widespread implementation of these solutions in industrial products.

From the reviews:

"The book presents the synthesis methodology and solutions for parallel manipulators. … The book gives the definitions of many terms in the area of mechanisms and robotics using the IFToMM terminology. The presented material summarizes research activities and some recent scientific advances in the structural synthesis of parallel robots. … this book can be considered as a very useful learning tool for scientists and engineers from academia and industry."
