Integrated Design and Analysis of a Novel Schönflies-Motion Generator
At McGill University’s Centre for Intelligent Machines a novel manipulation system is under development, for the realization of four-degree-of-freedom motions, i.e., three translations and one rotation around a vertical axis, what is known as Schönflies motions; we will also refer to these as SCARA motions. In this paper the principles of the development of the system are considered, including layout selection criteria and decision-making in the design procedure.
