Cable-driven robot for the assembly of solar power plants
The technology seems archaic, but it has a promising future. It makes use of winches as its main components. A mobile platform is fixed between the winches so that the synchronized movement of the winches allows for the free programming of motion.
The cable-driven parallel robot impresses not only with its low-cost components and ultra-lightweight construction, which greatly reduces energy and material consumption, it also offers the potential for significantly improving and scaling up the key performance characteristics of robots such as workspace, dynamic capacity, and payload.
This is why cable-driven robots are perfectly suited, e.g., for the construction and assembly of large-scale plants, such as solar power plants composed of a large number of identical modules.
This international conference offers a unique forum to exchange information on the state-of-the-art and on recent developments in the field of cable-driven parallel robots. Thirty leading experts from three continents gather at this conference to discuss theoretical and practical issues and report on the latest developments.
Among them are some of the most recognized experts in the field of cable-driven parallel robots, including Professor Clément Gosselin, Laval University, Canada, or the author of the most influential book on parallel robots, Professor Jean-Pierre Merlet, INRIA Sophia-Antipolis, France, and Professor Sunil Agrawal, University of Delaware, USA. In their keynotes, these luminaries will bring the theory of cable-driven parallel robots to life and show how it can be applied.
