Abstract. In this paper, a prototype of a LARM leg mechanism is proposed by using a tripod manipulator and its operation performance is investigated through lab experimental tests. In particular, an experimental layout is presented for investigating operational performance. A prescribed motion with an isosceles trapezoid trajectory is used for characterizing the system behavior. Experiment results are analyzed for the purpose of operation evaluation and architecture design characterization of the tripod manipulator and its proposed prototype.
