This paper presents a robot manipulator with collision force suppression mechanism that can passively suppress collision force. The collision suppression mechanism consists of a release air pad, a transmission rack, a clutch gear and a compression spring. An air cushion bag is attached to the exterior of the robot manipulator. If a robot manipulator(More)
This paper presents a collision force suppression mechanism that is installed in the shoulder and elbow joints of a 5-DOF manipulator. The collision suppression mechanism consists of an air cushion bag, a transmission rack, a clutch gear and two compression springs. If the manipulator collides with an object or a human when the end-effector of the(More)
This paper presents a collision force suppression mechanism that is installed in the joints of the manipulator of a human-friendly robot. The collision suppression mechanism consists of an outer circular disk, an inner circular disk, torsion springs, compression springs, etc. If the manipulator collides with an object, the suppression mechanism disconnects(More)
