Actuation and control of robotic hands is one of the difficult problems in mechatronics that still needs to be solved. In this paper we present a kinematic analysis of a robotic finger that is actuated by twisted strings mechanism, which we named Twist Drive. The principle of actuation is briefly described in the paper and a structure of the developed(More)
In this paper, we describe the concept, design and implementation of a series of autonomous mobile soccer robots, named "Musashi" robot, which have a mechatronics modular architecture, to participate in the RoboCup middle-size league. In this design methodology, we show that the selection of a proper moving mechanism, a suitable vision system and a(More)
Actuation and control of robotic hands is one of the problems in engineering that still needs to be satisfactorily solved. In this paper we present a robotic finger actuated by twisted strings mechanism that we call Twist Drive. A principle of the proposed actuation is described and its basic characteristics are presented. The structure of a developed(More)
In this paper, we describe the concept, design and implementation of a series of autonomous mobile soccer robots, named ldquoMusashirdquo robot, which have safety design which is based on ISO and a mechatronics modular architecture, to participate in the RoboCup middle-size league. In modularity design methodology, we show that the selection of a proper(More)
