Presented in this paper is a method for analysis and control of an actuation-redundant parallel mechanism requiring synchronization. The said mechanism is made up of two branches that are connected to drive a common end-effector with only one degree-of-freedom of motion. The two actuators must share the load exerted on the common end-effector during motion. The underlying problem is to synchronize the motion of the two actuators while balancing the forces on them so that the entire mechanism can move smoothly under the applied load on the end-effector. Due to the space limitation, the two branches are geometrically different leading to opposite force profiles for the two actuators. The proposed method combines the mechanism kinematics with force analysis. First, a closed-form solution is derived that relates the actuator strokes to the rotation angle of the end-effector. Second, a velocity relationship is obtained to relate the actuator velocities to the angular velocity of the end-effector. Third, a force relationship is established relating the actuator loads to the external load. Fourth, a control strategy is designed to synchronize the motion of the two actuators while maintaining the force balance between them to avoid the problem of motion mismatching and force fighting that could lead to the failure of the mechanism. A prototype was built and tested with the proposed method, which is also presented in this paper.
