I designed a robot. It consists of an actuator, linkage and a camera. the actuator is considered as a dc motor in this problem. I need to identify this system. how can I find a model for actuator and loads on it(camera and linkage have mass)?
I used this actuator
edited: It is a 2 Dof robot. camera rotates about y and movies up and down (z-axis). The camera and linkage are attached to the Stroke. When the camera is lifting up, the actuator is retracting and when it moves down, the actuator is expanding.
