article description
This paper presents the end-effector pose error modeling and motion accuracy analysis of a planar 2PRP-PPR parallel manipulator with an unsymmetrical (U-shape) fixed base. The error model is established based on the screw theory with considerations of both configuration (geometrical) errors and joint clearances. It also proposes a robust cascaded control scheme for the end-effector pose (task-space) error correction in trajectory-tracking of the manipulator due to mechanical inaccuracies. The proposed control scheme uses redundant sensor feedback, i.e., individual active joint displacements and velocities and, end-effector positions and orientation are obtained as feedback signals using appropriate sensors. To demonstrate the efficacy and show complete performance of the proposed controller, real-time experiments are accomplished on an in-house fabricated planar 2PRP-PPR parallel manipulator.
