Structural Design of Force and Torque Sensing (Electronics) for Industrial Robots

To determine the geometry of a beam structure which is used to make a single axis and a 6-axis force torque sensor which can be incorporated into a robot joint or at the tip of the arm. Strain gages mounted on the beams reflect the deflection of the beam which is a measure of the force/ torque applied on the beam. The design should be compact, light-weight but rigid, and provide sufficient sensitivity to measure the applied forces/ torques.

Structural design of beam assembly, material selection, strain analysis using CAD software, engineering design of module
