PKM 2020: Parallel Kinematic Manipulators

Scientific community has addressed many research topics. This work was mainly specific and as an example, we can cite in an unsorted manner: kinematics, dynamics, singularities, type-synthesis, dimensional synthesis, control, simulation, calibration, identification, design, technology, performance indices, reconfigurable devices and experiments. A good control of these points is requested to obtain a convincing running prototype with potential applications in industry as a special machine or as a commercially available product.

Course overview
Scientific community has addressed many research topics. This work was mainly specific and as an example, we can cite in an unsorted manner: kinematics, dynamics, singularities, type-synthesis, dimensional synthesis, control, simulation, calibration, identification, design, technology, performance indices, reconfigurable devices and experiments. A good control of these points is requested to obtain a convincing running prototype with potential applications in industry as a special machine or as a commercially available product. Indeed, it is worth to notice that despite the huge research effort devoted to this domain, only few products are available on the market. The main explanations lie on one hand in the fact that such robots can seem complex and require a big research investigation an on the other hand that academic research is split into specialized domains. Moreover, when prototypes or demonstrators are built, the goal is to validate theories through experiments and not to convince industrial partners for future products or applications. Nevertheless, some demonstrators are built in that way and allow meeting industrial applications.
