Review and Recent Results on Stewart Gough Platforms with Self-Motions
In this paper we give a detailed review on Stewart Gough (SG) platforms with self-motions and the related Borel Bricard problem. Moreover, we report about recent results achieved by the author on this topic (SG platforms with type II DM self-motions). In context of these results, we also present two new theorems, which open the way for addressed future work. Finally, we give some remarks on planar SG platforms with type I DM self-motions and formulate a central conjecture.
