Then, the matching crank-rocker module is designed to be supplemented to the four-bar with a revolute joint at the circle point.
As the discussion for the definitions of master-active joints and slave-active joints before, here master-active joints A and B separately represent hip joint and knee joint; rotary actuator and linear actuator are adopted as the two slave-active joints' driven sources; the left revolute joint C is a passive joint.

As shown in Figure 1, the 7R 6-DOF robot consists of 7 revolute joints.
To illustrate Theorem 18, we now employ a MAS composed of four single-link robots with revolute joints [37], whose dynamics can be written in the form of (4) with
In order to calculate the joint reaction forces associated with the Cartesian coordinates, let us assume that [F.sup.i.sub.c] and [M.sup.i.sub.c] be, respectively, the vectors of actual joint reaction forces and moments acting on body i as a result of the certain (revolute, prismatic, etc.) joint with body j.
As Figure 1 shows, [A.sub.1], [A.sub.2], and [A.sub.3] are the three vertices of the regular triangle whose side length is 500 mm, where the active revolute joints are set.
