Singularity Analysis of a Plane-Symmetry 3-RPS Parallel Robot Based on Translational/Rotational Jacobian Matrices
Firstly, 3-DOF parallel robots were classified into different types from the view of moving form. A new method of analyzing the singularity of 3-DOF parallel robots was introduced, which is based on translational Jacobian matrix and rotational Jacobian matrix. The singularity of parallel robots with pure translational form and pure rotational form was introduced summarily. Secondly, the process of solving the plane-symmetry 3-RPS parallel robot with combined moving forms was focused on, through which translational Jacobian matrix and rotational Jacobian matrix were adopted. Finally, the solving results were compared with the axis-symmetry 3-RPS parallel robot, which showed more general singularity can be solved through the new method.
