The aim of this project is to design and test an add-on spring support for the legs of
Robug IV. This mechanism will allow the robot to operate with the 6bar air supply
available at the University of Southern Queensland.
A model of a leg is developed and tested for its accuracy. It includes both kinematic
and kinetic aspects of the leg. Loop closure equations and an iterative method are used
for the kinematics. The kinetic equations are derived using the force balancing method.
The model is used to develop a good design solution for the spring mechanism and to
predict its behaviour when manufactured and assembled.
