In the last three decades, cable-driven parallel robots (CDPRs) have captured a growing attention in the robotics field.

In this paper, a look-and-move procedure is proposed, based on a wireless camera, to refer the coordinate frame of the CDPR platform to another known coordinate frame. Two sample cases are studied and presented. In the first, the proposed vision-based system is employed to let the platform precisely attain its home position.

Abstract

In the last three decades, cable-driven parallel robots (CDPRs) have captured a growing attention in the robotics field. Indeed, they promise to bring automation in fields where it is not affirmed yet, granting ease of scaling and reconfigurability. For large-workspace cable robots, accuracy is an important issue. In this paper, a look-and-move procedure is proposed, based on a wireless camera, to refer the coordinate frame of the CDPR platform to another known coordinate frame. Two sample cases are studied and presented. In the first, the proposed vision-based system is employed to let the platform precisely attain its home position. In the second, the platform is referenced to an external coordinate frame, in order to accurately accomplish an assigned task. For both cases, experiments are successfully carried out.
