— This paper presents a time-efficient, task-based configuration synthesis algorithm for modular robot manipula-tors. One of the main challenges in modular manipulators is to find possible combinations of modules that are able to complete given tasks while avoiding obstacles in the environment. Most studies on modular robots focus on obtaining combinations(More)
— This paper is concerned with path planning of highly redundant manipulators, which are particularly well suited for flexible manufacturing. We envision that highly redundant manipulators will be composed of a set of standard modules. In order to find the optimal configuration of modules, one has to perform a discrete search on possible assemblies of(More)
