Parallel Robotics Group
The University of Wyoming Parallel Robotics Research Group is actively investigating the design and application of parallel robots for precision pointing and vibration isolation. This research was initiated by John E. McInroy and John O'Brien, based on their experience at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The UW HEX, pictured to the right, is a second generation design, owing much of its structure and refinement to NASA JPL's hexapod. The research conducted at the University of Wyoming has been sponsored by numerous federal agencies over the past fifteen years.
