Sizing a Serial Chain to Fit a Task Trajectory Using Clifford Algebra Exponentials
— In this paper we formulate the “generalized inverse kinematics problem” for a spatial serial chain, where the goal is to determine values for structural parameters as well as for the joint parameters. The kinematics equations of the chain are formulated first using matrix exponentials and then cast into a form based on exponentials in a Clifford algebra. These equations contain the coordinates of the joint axes explicitly and have a systematic structure that can be exploited in their solution. As an example we fit a seven degree-of-freedom CCS chain to a 12 position task trajectory. In this problem, we can also specify desired values for the first two joint angles, and compute the structural parameters and the remaining joint angles.
