In this work, nonlinear optimization models for spatial RRSS mechanism motion generation and axode generation are both applied to develop a single degree of freedom cam mechanism to replicate RRSS coupler motion. As an example, a concept cam mechanism is developed to precisely achieve a group of prescribed solar panel poses originally achieved by an RRSS mechanism.
