    • Abstract

       

      Optimal kinematic design of parallel manipulators is a challenging problem. In this work, an attempt has been made to present a generalized approach of kinematic design for a 6-legged parallel manipulator, by considering only the minimally required design parameters. The same approach has been used to design a 7-legged redundant parallel manipulator. Two ways of introducing redundancy into the parallel manipulator have been demonstrated and comparison between them has been presented.
