Synthesis of kthorder fault–tolerant kinematically redundant manipulator designs using relative kinematic isotropy
Fault tolerance has become an essential capability in manipulator design methodologies as robotic manipulation systems are more frequently employed in hazardous environments and on geometrically complex or heavy duty industrial operations, where mechanical joint failures are likely to occur. This work focuses on the development of a redundant manipulator design methodology aimed at minimising the ...
