The design of a variety of novel Parallel Kinematic Mechanisms (PKMs) in the past three decades, and research into redundancy and reconfigurability have presented researchers with an opportunity to develop reconfigurable PKMs. In this paper, a novel synthesis approach for Reconfigurable Redundant PKMs (RRPKMs) is presented. The approach, motivated by the required reconfigurability, can help synthesize RRPKMs that reconfigure into lower mobility sub-configurations, assembly/working modes, and… CONTINUE READING
