Abstract
A framework called task based design (TBD) to design an optimal robot manipulator for a given task is proposed. Only kinematic parameters are considered. An optimal manipulator is designed. It performs a given task best by using a framework called progressive design that decomposes the complexity of the task into three steps: kinematic design, planning, and kinematic control. As an example problem of TBD, a manipulator for a space shuttle tile servicing task is designed.
