Robotics is improving very fast and it is used everywhere. Robotics is a hybrid of mechanics, electrical engineering and computer science. The thing I like in this field is that if you are working hard you can develop a lot of things and you can provide many useful devices for people. To reach this aim, my main focus is on medical robots and devices. But we are working in other areas. Besides, we are working in haptics field because it helps us to provide practical systems like as systems for tele-rehabilitation and tele-medicine. Thus, combining haptics and robotics will make a very fascinating area which helps us to make a lot of profitable devices. I started my work with mechanism design and then I developed my works by building and controlling different robots. This kind of interdisciplinary work help me to have different ideas and make creative things.

Abstract: In this paper a new model for center of motion creating is proposed. This new method uses cables. So, it is very useful in robots because it is light and has easy assembling process. In the robots which need to be in touch with some things this method is so useful. It will be described in the following. The accuracy of the idea is proved by two experiments. This system could be used in the robots which need a fixed point in the contact with some things and make a circular motion. Keywords—Center of Motion, Robotic cables, permanent touching.} number={
