Abstract

The motion synthesis of a mechanism is obtained by curve fitting the intersection of the constraint manifolds representing each leg of the linkage in an image space to points obtained by the kinematic mapping of the prescribed positions and orientations The dimensions of the mechanism can be found by using optimization algorithms to minimize the normal distance between all the desired image points and image curve of the tracer frame The theory is illustrated by numerical examples.
