Description

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are originally developed for military, but have been developed over time to time for valuable roles in surveillance, work-assistant, and intelligence for both civilian and military operations.

The ability of UAVs that manipulate or carry objects can expand the type of tasks achieved by unmanned aerial systems. High degree of freedom robots with dexterous arm can lead to various applications. Most of manipulators are serial, each motor on each joint affects on stabilizing UAVs. Our lab , DASL , has presented parallel mechanism manipulator for UAVs. It results in less impact on center of gravity(CoG) of UAVs and high precise manipulation.

Thus, this work focuses on 6 degree-of-freedom parallel manipulator and gripper(PMG) concept for unmanned aerial vehicles that can be used for multiple purposes. Depending on the purpose, the grasper module on the manipulator’s end-effector changes. The design and mechanism is proposed, and the final results are also given.
