Backdrivability on ball screws

This article complements previous entry on general backdrivability exploring the conditions under which a ball screw is backdrivable. Power transmission screws—ball screws and lead screws—are typically used for converting rotary motion to linear motion. But when a load is applied axially

Backdrivability

There is a trend in robotics towards the use of backdrivable actuators due to multiple reasons. One of them, is the need of sharing the environment with humans. Such a robot needs flexibility to adapt the differences between real environmental
