Parallel Manipulators in Biomechanics and Robotics
In the lecture we will be shown the newest discoveries on the field of parallel manipulators. Parallel manipulators are mechanisms which contain more closed, parallel, cinematic loops, where only few are driven by motors. The attention will be focused on the influence of different parameters; air at the joints, constructional defects, cinematic singularities and isotropy, the activity of the manipulator especially from the biomechanics and robotic point of view.
