Two DOF Parallel Robot Design and Dynamics Simulation for Quick Picking



This paper presents a new design approach of parallel robot for quick grasp based on parallelogram mechanism,and derives the dynamics model. Using SimMechanics toolbox and simlink toolbox in Matlab Software, and guiding the three dimensional solid model into it, the dynamics simulation and control on two DOF parallel robot is designed and studied. The experimental results show that the design mechanism obtains the anticipated requirement.
