Abstract:In this study a variable stiffness mechanism with high torque output characteristics was developed for a differential drive. In doing so, different existing mechanisms and their underlying principles were investigated to elaborate further on a chosen design implementation. Based on this choice, the principle is modelled and realized according to the requirements imposed by the differential drive. Finally, validation of the model is achieved by tests of a simplified prototype. The Outcome of this work forms a possible solution to the problem statement of a high torque variable stiffness mechanism, but has to be processed further to be fully integrated into the differential drive.
