The 6-axis robot system used in assembly line, spray painting, process automation, etc conventionally use the Cartesian or polar system of orientation, where in there is a single actuator for each motion and each motion is achieved as combination of individual motion of these actuators to get the net effect. This method proves to be more time consuming because cycle time of each actuator is added to form the total time required to reach the destination spot. So also cost of each actuator and complex control system is also very high and the system is high on space required, running cost and space occupancy. Thus in order to reduce the cycle time , cost space occupancy and running cost the humanoid wrist arm robot system is designed. The innovation in the wrist arm design to control three direction motion using a single motor makes the system very compact, cost effective, and easy to control and operate and low on running cost as only one actuator is needed instead of three. The project aims at design, development and analysis of this wrist arm and combining it with rotation about z-axis motion to effect a complete manipulator design.
