The 6 Degree-of-Freedom variant is still in the concept stage, but the actuator design from our 2-DOF design will be used.

Projected specifications:

  • Max rotation rate: 30 degrees / s
  • Max Pitch: +/- 45 degrees
  • Max Yaw: +/- 45 degrees
  • Max Roll: +/- 45 degrees
  • Max Position: +/- 24 inches in any direction
  • Max Translation Rate: 22 inches / s

The 6-DOF platform will leverage six actuators to allow for simultaneous rotation and translation in three dimensions.  The design is a variant of a “Stewart Platform.”

Estimated prototype completion date: December, 2018
