Hexapod + Drone = New Industrial & Research Applications for Motion Simulation and Compensation

Hexapod + Drone = New Industrial & Research Applications for Motion Simulation and Compensation

Hexapods are 6 DOF motion systems that derive 6-axis movement (XYZ, Pitch, Yaw) from actuators placed in parallel between a top and bottom platform. Available in a variety of sizes with bases ranging from 100mm to 1m, different stiffness configurations, and supportive of loads from 2 kg to 1,000+ kg, PI hexapods share two common traits – precision and versatility– as seen in a new test of a drone-mounted camera on PI’s H-840 hexapod as it goes thru a series of motions.
