A method for both calibration and validation of a 6 DOF electrogoniometer is presented. A 6 Revolute Instrumented Spatial Linkage (6R-ISL) and a three-dimensional digitizer (3DD) were used simultaneously to collect both static and continuous poses of unconstrained or constrained motions. Validation occurred using a calibrated ball-and-socket joint. A parametrical model of the 6R-ISL (i.e. Virtual Goniometer or VG) was designed using a standard multibody system geometry. Two approaches were used… CONTINUE READING
