Special Session Summary

Serial robots cannot provide the necessary performance during operations which require high acceleration and precise motion under high loading conditions due to the flexibility of the manipulator; therefore manipulators with parallel kinematic structure are preferred in such cases. Parallel manipulators are being a hot research topic since over 25 years due to their high stiffness, ability to attain high accelerations, high precision and high load/inertia ratio. Although parallel manipulators can be optimally designed according to several performance criteria, the positioning accuracy is still limited in application due to factors such as manufacturing errors and flexibility of links and joints. In this regard, many theoretical and applied studies on enhancing positioning accuracy of parallel manipulators are being held in universities and industry. Some of these studies focus on design of paralel manipulators with new kinematic architectures, whereas some studies focus on strucutral or control design/modifications for enhancing the performance of available manipulators. This special session is organized for presentation of studies on analysis, design and positioning accuracy of parallel manipulators held at different universities, information exchange and creating a medium for discussions.
