Then, the matching crank-rocker module is designed to be supplemented to the four-bar with a revolute joint at the circle point.
Note that, for the RPU limb, the axis of the revolute joint connected to the base platform is parallel to the y axis and the axis of the universal joint connected to the moving platform is also parallel to the y axis.
The shoulder joint has 3 DOFs (S1: abduction/adduction; S2: flexion/extension; S3: rotation), and the elbow is simplified as a revolute joint with 1 DOF (E1: flexion/extension).
Similar to the lower-limb straight-walking assistive robots in [16, 17], in this paper, the lower-limb straight-walking assistive mechanism also only assists hip joint's and knee joint's flexion/extension motions, where the assistive mechanism includes a revolute joint and a prismatic joint as shown in Figure 1.
For front suspension, two under-springs were connected with each tire and wheel by revolute joint and these two under-springs were connected with vehicle body by translational joints.
Revolute joints are represented by blocks 'Revolute joint', which permits rotation about its Z-axis.
Fork is connected to the handle through a revolute joint, so that its angle with the handle may be changed.
Comparison of revolute joint clearance model in the dynamic analysis of rigid and elastic mechanical systems, Mechanism and Machine Theory 37(9): 895-913.
The elbow DOF consists of a revolute joint that is actuated by a brushed motor attached via nylon coated cable to a capstan arc.
It is formed by reduction of one coaxial revolute joint into one kinematic chain which makes a parallel-plane moving.
For the prismatic joint, [d.sub.i] is the variable whose value range is [d.sub.i] > 0, while for the revolute joint, [[theta].sub.i] is the variable whose value range is -[pi] ~ [pi].
