Telecubes: Mechanical Design of a Module for Self-Reconfigurable Robotics
Telecubes is a cubic module that has six prismatic degrees of freedom whose sides can expand more than twice its original length and has the ability to magnetically (de)attach to other modules. Many of these modules can be connected together to form a modular self-reconfigurable robot. The paper presents the intended functions, discusses the physical requirements of the modules and describes two key mechanical components: a compact telescoping linear actuator and a switching permanent magnet device.
