In motion generation, the objective is to calculate the mechanism parameters required to achieve or approximate a set of prescribed rigid-body positions. This work introduces a new design constraint that considers driving link static torque for a given rigid-body load. By incorporating this new constraint into a conventional spherical four-bar motion generation model , spherical four-bar mechanisms are synthesized to achieve-not only prescribed rigid-body positions-but also satisfy a maximum driver static torque for a given rigid-body load.
