PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS OF ANTHROMORPHIC DUMMY JOINTS

Three commercial anthropomorphic dummy joint assemblies have been evaluated for uniformity of torque response, repeatability, and angular velocity sensitivity. Description of test method and data reduction procedures are presented. Numerical criteria are proposed to characterize the performance of coulomb friction joint designs. A brief discussion of effects of applied torques external to the plane of motion is also included.
