In this paper, the problem of identification of cam profiles is addressed by proposing a suitable kinematic model. A suitable test-bed has been designed and built at LARM: Laboratory of Robotics and Mechatronics in Cassino for experimental tests. The study proposed in this paper has been carried out specifically for circular-arc cams and validation tests have given satisfactory results for identification of the profile curvature.
