Short summary
Based on the freedom and constraint topology approach and atlas approach, a new method for the synthesis of a redundant actuated compliant parallel mechanism is proposed, the synthesis conditions are given, and the synthesis process is formulated. With this proposed method, two new translation redundant actuated compliant parallel mechanisms are synthesized, and some new mechanisms have been synthesized. The degree of freedom analysis verifies the correctness and effectiveness of the method.
