Twist Feasibility Analysis of Cable-Driven Parallel Robots

Abstract : Although several papers addressed the wrench capabilities of cable-driven parallel robots (CDPRs), few have tackled the dual question of their twist capabilities. In this paper, these twist capabilities are evaluated by means of the more specific concept of twist feasibility, which was defined by Gagliardini et al. in a previous work. A CDPR posture is called twist-feasible if all the twists (point-velocity and angular-velocity combinations), within a given set, can be produced at the CDPR mobile platform, within given actuator speed limits. Two problems are solved in this paper: (1) determining the set of required cable winding speeds at the CDPR winches being given a prescribed set of required mobile platform twists; and (2) determining the set of available twists at the CDPR mobile platform from the available cable winding speeds at its winches. The solutions to both problems can be used to determine the twist feasibility of n-degree-of-freedom (DOF) CDPRs driven by m ≥ n cables. An example is presented, where the twist-feasible workspace of a simple CDPR with n = 2 DOF and driven by m = 3 cables is computed to illustrate the proposed method.
