Cables robots are a category of robots operating totally operated by cables, by means of winches. It is used in particular as manipuleurs to move loads.
The Biological Cybernetics Laboratory of the Max Planck Institute (MPI) was presented at the conference DSC2015 a giant robot cables used in motion simulation.
The MPI robot presented at any of the fairground attraction. A platform operating in a volume of 5 x 8 x 5 m³. The total power winches reached 348 kilowatts thereby stimulate an acceleration of up to 1.5g. Equipped with panoramic displays, this mobile platform can be used in the simulation.
