An effective mechanical design and realization of a humanoid robot BUrobot
MetadataShow full item record
Mechanical design and production of humanoid robots are not yet standardized and many different robot configurations are being researched by academics. This paper is written as a motivation to publish the results of an experimental study that was carried out at Balikesir University. The research project was aimed to explore whether a simpler, yet functional mechanical design aspects of humanoid robots with a relatively small budget could be achieved. Design process includes iterative mechanical design including motor selection, kinematics analysis of the robot structure. A graphical user interface is developed in order to visually verify and inspect robot link locations and the location of projected center of mass of developed robot. Theoretical and experimental results showed promising results on which we can build future biped robots.
