Industrial robot manipulators are important components of most automated manufacturing systems. Their design and applications rely on modeling, analyzing, and programming the robot tool-center-point (TCP) positions with the best accuracy. Industrial practice shows that creating accurate robot TCP positions for robot applications such as welding, material handling, and inspection is a critical task that can be very time-consuming depending on the complexity of robot operations. Many factors may affect the accuracy of created robot TCP positions. Among them, variations of robot geometric parameters such as robot link dimensions and joint orientations represent the...
