EVALUATION OF AN AUTOMATED DESIGN AND OPTIMIZATION FRAMEWORK FOR MODULAR ROBOTS USING A PHYSICAL PROTOTYPE
2011 (English)In: Proceedings of the 18th International Conference on Engineering Design (ICED11), Vol. 4, 2011, 195-204 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper presents an automated design and evaluation framework, by integrating design tools from various engineering domains for rapid evaluation of design alternatives. The presented framework enables engineers to perform simulation based optimizations. As a proof of concept a seven degree of freedom modular robot is designed and optimized using the automated framework. The designed robot is then manufactured to evaluate the framework using preliminary tests.
