Title (EN) AN ARTICULATED JOINT FOR A ROBOT ARM
(FR) ARTICULATION ARTICULÉE POUR BRAS DE ROBOT
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to robotic arms, as well as to rigid arm segments and articulated joints, in particular, those suitable for robotic arms. The disclosure provides a robotic arm comprising: a plurality of arm segments (10) each having first and second opposite ends. Each arm segment (10) comprising: a first connector (12) for forming a joint with a neighbouring arm segments (10), the first connector (12) being at the first end and comprising one or more first electrical contact(s) (18); and a second connector (14) for forming a joint with a neighbouring arm segments (10), the second connector (14) being at the second end and comprising one or more second electrical contact(s) (17). The first connector (12) of a first arm segment (10) of the plurality of arm segments (10) is engaged with the second connector (14) of a second arm segment (10) of the plurality of arm segments (10), thereby forming a joint between the first and second arm segments (10) that enables relative rotation of the first and second arm segments (10) about more than one axis whilst maintaining electrical connections between each of the first electrical contact(s) (18) of the first arm (10) and the corresponding one of the second electrical contact(s) (17) of the second arm segment (10). The robotic arm comprises one or more actuators (20) for moving the first arm segment (10) relative to the second arm segment (10).
(FR) L'invention concerne des bras robotiques, ainsi que des articulations articulées et des segments de bras rigides, en particulier ceux appropriés pour des bras robotiques. L'invention concerne un bras robotique comprenant : une pluralité de segments de bras (10) ayant chacun des première et seconde extrémités opposées. Chaque segment de bras (10) comprend : un premier raccord (12) pour former une articulation avec un segment de bras voisin (10), le premier raccord (12) étant au niveau de la première extrémité et comprenant un ou plusieurs premiers contacts électriques (18) ; et un second raccord (14) pour former une articulation avec un segment de bras voisin (10), le second raccord (14) étant au niveau de la seconde extrémité et comprenant un ou plusieurs seconds contacts électriques (17). Le premier raccord (12) d'un premier segment de bras (10) de la pluralité de segments de bras (10) est en prise avec le second raccord (14) d'un second segment de bras (10) de la pluralité de segments de bras (10), formant ainsi une articulation entre les premier et second segments de bras (10) qui permet une rotation relative des premier et second segments de bras (10) autour de plus d'un axe tout en maintenant des connexions électriques entre chacun des premiers contacts électriques (18) du premier bras (10) et l'un correspondant des seconds contacts électriques (17) du second segment de bras (10). Le bras robotique comprend un ou plusieurs actionneurs (20) pour déplacer le premier segment de bras (10) par rapport au second segment de bras (10).
