Abstract
A rapidly deployable manipulator system combines the flexibility of reconfigurable modular hardware with modular programming tools, allowing the user to rapidly create a manipulator which is custom-tailored for a given task. This article describes two main aspects of such a system, namely, the reconfigurable modular manipulator system (RMMS) hardware and the corresponding control software.
