Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to develop a science for the design of computer controlled manipulator systems which could be scaled for small manipulators. At the outset of the study the lack of specific tasks or the specific scale of a design environment forced consideration of a working volume consistent with people in order to determine the relationships between tasks, task scale and performance requirements for actuators, sensors both force and position, etc.
