At present, there has been a rapid advancement in the use of new materials and modern technologies in the design and technical improvement of robotic systems. Methods of numerical modeling are most commonly used in the design and development of load-bearing parts of mechanisms. When designing complicated mechanical systems such as robotic systems, it is often difficult to correctly define boundary conditions that correspond to the actual operational state using the results obtained through numerical modeling. The paper presents methods of verification of the results obtained by numerical modeling in the selected load-bearing component of a six-leg robot from experimental measurement using tensometry with the aim to take into account the strength and stiffness parameters of the load-bearing part in order not to jeopardize safe and reliable operation of the mobile robotic platform.
