In order to do rapid testing of Cosamira IMUs and monitoring software, a hexapod needs to be designed and prototyped.
This hexapod can displace a Cosamira unit in all 6-axis (x, y, z accelerations and rotations). Therefore we can quickly assess that internal IMUs are correctly working but also that they are correctly in line with the unit-housing. The hexapod could also be used in a R&D phase for reproducing specific train speed-profile in order to trigger some monitoring/safety algorithms and test their behavior in a controlled environment.
This topic is three fold:
The first goal is to build and resolve all the necessary invert kinematic in order to drive the platform in a cartesian/ spherical coordinate system.
The second part will be to develop the necessary physical interface between the computer that runs the kinematic equations and the actuators.
The third and last goal consist in designing the mechanical parts to link the platform and actuators together.
