Optimal design of CaPaMan (Cassino Parallel Manipulator) with a specified orientation workspace
CaPaMan (Cassino Parallel Manipulator) is a 3-Degree Of Freedom spatial parallel manipulator that has been designed at the Laboratory of Robotics and Mechatronics, in Cassino. In this paper we present a formulation for an optimum design for CaPaMan architecture when the orientation workspace is suitably specified.(Received October 18 2001)
