Abstract

A new formula for the connectivity calculation between two links is proposed, based on which an automatic method to acquire the connectivity matrix for planar closed kinematic chains is developed. This method can be used to automatically generate the mechanisms whose base and end-effector have the required connectivity from the synthesized kinematic chains, hence it is useful for the creative design of mechanisms.
