The planet gear is fixed rigidly to link 3 and its center is guided in the fixed track 1. The output rotation is taken from the sun gear 4. Sketch a kinematic diagram of this mechanism, measure the lengths and determine its DOF. Can it be classified by the Barker scheme? If so what Barker class and subclass is it Fig. 2.
