Planar motion control 1c

Orange object has 3 degrees of freedom in its planar motion: two linear and one angular displacements.

This mechanism can deal with two linear ones.

For object center A(x,y):

Left motor controls x value via screw-nut drive.

Right motor controls y value via rack-pinion drive.

Angular position of the object is unstable and needs a control device (not shown).

For angular control devices refer to:

Planar motion control 2b
