    TitleDesign and Realization of a 100G Parallel Kinematic Manipulator
  • Nestinger, Stephen, ME
  • Availability unrestricted


    The goal of this project was to design, fabricate and implement a parallel kinematic manipulator robot with open architecture to be used in the Industrial Robotics course, ME/RBE 4815, curriculum for inverse kinematics and other classroom projects. The robot was designed using solid modeling software and fabricated in the WPI machine shop with use of computer aided manufacturing techniques. A programming architecture was also developed in concert with the mechanical-electrical system to allow control of the robot via a touchscreen GUI.
