Abstract (englisch):

can be classified according to their mechanical structure. Serial mechanisms like robotic
arms are mechanisms where each moving part (called a link) is connected to only the one
before and the one after it. They are often used when a large workspace is required, meaning
the robot needs a long reach. In parallel mechanisms, the links of the robot form loops causing
them to be structurally stronger and stiffer.
If both a large workspace and structural strength are required, hybrids that contain both serial
and parallel mechanisms are used. While hybrid mechanisms combine the mechanical advantages
of both parallel and serial mechanisms, they also combine their modeling disadvantages:
Finding an explicit solution for either forward or inverse kinematics is often impossible.
Using numerical approaches instead leads to complicated constrained optimization
problems for both forward and inverse kinematics.
While serial mechanisms are very well supported by current robotic frameworks, parallel
mechanisms and hybrid mechanisms especially are often not supported at all.
TriP is a python package designed to close this gap using a modular modeling framework. ... mehr
