Operation modes and self-motions of the 2-RUU parallel manipulator

Abstract

This paper deals with the characterization of the operation modes of the 2-RUU parallel ma-nipulator with an algebraic approach, namely the Study kinematic mapping of the Euclidean group SE(3). The manipulator is described by a set of eight constraint equations and the primary decomposition reveals that the mechanism has three 4-dof operation modes. The singularity conditions are obtained by deriving the determinant of the Jacobian matrix of the constraint equations with respect to the Study parameters. It is shown that there exist singular configurations in which the 2-RUU parallel manipulator may switch from one operation mode to another operation mode, which is known as constraint singularity. All the singular configurations are mapped onto the joint space and are physically interpreted. Eventually, the 2-RUU parallel manipulator may switch from the 1st Schönflies mode to the 2nd Schönflies mode, or vice versa, through the additional 4-dof mode that contains self-motion.
