Design and Manufacturing of a Mobile Rescue Robot
This paper presents design and manufacturing procedure of a tele-operative rescue robot. First, the general task to be performed by such a robot is defined, and variant kinematic mechanisms to form the basic structure of the robot will be discussed. Choosing an appropriate mechanism, geometric dimensions, and mass properties will be detailed to develop a dynamics model for the system. Next, the strength of each component is analyzed to finalize its shape. To complete the design procedure, Patran/Nastran was used to apply the finite element method for strength analysis of complicated parts. Also, ADAMS was used to model the mechanisms, where 3D sketch of each component of the robot was generated by means of Solidworks, and several sets of equations governing the dimensions of system were solved using Matlab. Finally, the components are fabricated and assembled together with controlling hardware. Two main processors are used within the control system of the robot. The operator’s PC as ...
