Most lamp units at ceilings, walls, and streets are static and no automatic motion capabilities are available at all to adjust lamp tilting angles and its zooming position. This paper proposes a new robotic lamp that creates three degrees of freedom (DOF) motion by using a spherical-type parallel mechanism with a unique forward kinematic position. In the robotic lamp, three motors are placed at the base frame to control two tilting angles and one zoom in-and-out motion for a localized light. The kinematic model of this device is derived and the proto type has been developed. The performance of this device was verified through experiment.
