Participation de Stéphane Caro à ICIRA 2019 (conférence internationale en Robotique Intelligente)
Stéphane Caro a été invité à donner une « keynote lecture » lors de la conférence ICIRA ( International Conference on Intelligent Robotics and Applications) qui s’est tenue du 8 au 11 août 2019 à Shenyang, Chine.
Abstract: Cable-Driven Parallel Robots (CDPRs) form a particular class of parallel robots whose moving platform is connected to a fixed base frame by cables. The connection points between thecables and the base frame are referred to as exit points. The cables are coiled on motorized winches. Passive pulleys may guide the cables from the winches to the exit points. A central control system coordinates the motors actuating the winches. Thereby,the pose and the motion of the moving platform are controlled by modifying the cable lengths. CDPRs have several advantages such as a relatively low mass of moving parts, a potentially very large workspace due to size scalability, and reconfiguration capabilities. Therefore, they can be used in several applications, e.g. heavy payload handling and airplane painting, cargo handling, warehouse applications, large-scale assembly and handling operations, and fast pick-and-place operations. Other possible applications include the broadcasting of sporting events, haptic devices, support structures for giant telescopes, and search and rescue deployable platforms. This keynote will deal with the design, modeling, workspace analysis and control of CDPRs. A focus will be put on the development of CDPRs in Nantes, France, and their potential industrial applications.
