Short summary
Since the common layout of Precise cable drive, Single-Input Single-Output (SISO) spur gear configuration, suffers from low torque-to-weight ratio and loose structure, this paper proposes a novel transmission configuration. It combines the advantages of Multiple-Input Single-Output (MISO) configuration and bevel gear configuration. The proposed technologies could have strong technological implications in some special applications such as stabilized sighting system or infrared imaging seeker.
