Title (EN) TENDON ACTUATED ARTICULATED MEMBERS FOR A TELEMANIPULATOR SYSTEM
(FR) SEGMENTS ARTICULES COMMANDES PAR UN TENDON, DESTINES A UN SYSTEME DE TELEMANIPULATEUR
Abstract:
(EN) An articulated apparatus is disclosed that includes a first link member (82), a second link member (76), and a third link member (24). The second link member (76) is coupled to the first link member (82) at a proximal end of the second link member (76) by a first joint (34) having a first axis of rotation. The third link member (24) is coupled to a distal end of the second link member (76) by a second joint (30). The movement of the third link member (24) with respect to the second link member (76) is governed by at least one tendon (64) that passes through the first axis of rotation of the first joint (34) that movement of the second member (76) with respect to the first member (82) does not cause movement of the third member (24) with respect to the second member (76).
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif articulé comprenant un premier segment (82), un deuxième segment (76) et un troisième segment (24). Le deuxième segment (76) est relié au premier segment (82) à une extrémité proximale du deuxième segment (76) par un premier joint (34) possédant un premier axe de rotation. Le troisième segment (24) est relié à une extrémité distale du deuxième segment (76) par un second joint (30). Le mouvement du troisième segment (24) par rapport au deuxième segment (76) est commandé par au moins un tendon (64) qui passe par le premier axe de rotation du premier joint (34) de façon que le mouvement du deuxième segment (76) par rapport au premier segment (82) ne déplace pas le troisième élément (24) par rapport au deuxième élément (76).
