Evaluation of influence of target location on robot repeatability Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • This paper evaluates the influence of target location on robot repeatability. An experiment was set up to analyze the effect of the three-dimensional target location on robot repeatability. An error-analysis model to determine repeatability based on the robot's kinematic model and known robot parameters was developed. Experimental results indicated that there was a significant statistical difference between repeatability at different locations in the workspace and that the height of the target point influenced repeatability. Experimental results tended to those derived from the error-analysis kinematic model. Hence, to determine the optimal target location, there is no need for extensive experimentation; instead, only a few target points can be sampled and compared to an error- analysis model.
