Mechanical Design of Robots

The design of mobile robots capable of intelligent motion and action without requiring either a guide to follow or a teleoperator control involves the integration of many different bodies of knowledge. This makes mobile robotics a challenge worthwhile. To solve locomotion problems the mobile roboticist must understand mechanisms and kinematics, dynamics and control theory.

To create robust perceptual systems, the mobile roboticist must leverage the field of signal analysis and specialized bodies of knowledge such as computer visions to properly employ a multitude of sensors technologies.

The mechanical designs of mobile robots are including:
1. Robot’s Leg. They are the most important assemblies of the mechanical platform.
2. Bearings. The most important bearing in the leg is the bearing over part X. This bearing is actually a double row angular contact ball bearings, but takes up less axial space.
3. Motors. Motors divided into 2 types. They are Drive Motor and Steer Motor. Drive motor must able to drive the wheels and produce motion in that way. And for Steer Motor divided again into two types, they are stepper motor and servo motor.
4. Frame is the mechanical platform of robot. This frame is structure to hold all parts together.
5. Transmission. The rest is transmission mechanism. It can be rotary motion by chains. And the other possibilities are using belts or gears.
