Abstract

This paper presents a new design of a deployable one degree-of-freedom (DOF) mechanism. Polygonal rigid-link designs are first investigated. Then, belt-driven links are considered in order to maximize the expansion ratio while avoiding flattened ill-conditioned parallelogram configurations. The planar basic shape of the proposed design is a triangle. Hence, virtually any planar or spatial surface can be created by assembling such faces. For architecture and telescopic applications, the cupola assembly is investigated. The advantages of this approach are discussed, and the scalability is demonstrated. Finally, a prototype is built for illustration purposes.
