A robot governed and activated by cables. This is a type of manipulator or parallel robot.

One end of each cable is rolled around a motorised rotor while the other end is connected to the last activation mechanism or actuator.

The cables are lighter than the rigid bonds of a serial or parallel robot and enable the use of long cables without excessively saturating the mechanism. This way, the final actuator of a robot cable can attain significant acceleration and velocity values, and it can operate in a spacious work area.
