Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA)-Driven Design of a Planetary Gearbox for Active Wearable Robotics
Conducting an FMEA for the design of a planetary gear transmission for exoskeletons enables decision making based on the interdependence between design parameters and the device requirements, as well as an early identification of several functional risks. Therefore, the use of FMEAs in the design of wearable robotic devices could contribute to higher design robustness, and ultimately result in a broader acceptance of future active wearable robotic devices.
