Q1. What contributions have the authors mentioned in the paper "A calibration procedure for reconfigurable gough-stewart manipulators" ?
This paper introduces a calibration procedure for the identification of the geometrical parameters of a reconfigurable Gough-Stewart parallel manipulator. Furthermore, an application of the proposed method is discussed with a numerical example, and the behaviour of the calibration procedure is analysed as a function of the number of acquisitions and the number of poses.
Q2. What future works have the authors mentioned in the paper "A calibration procedure for reconfigurable gough-stewart manipulators" ?
Since the procedure follows a linear approximation with the assumption of small parameter variation, it is possible to study the dependency of limb length on position and geometry independently. A direct derivation of the total differential of Eq. ( 2. 2 ) yields the same result without decoupling the system and can be obtained by expanding Eq. ( A. 5 ) without applying conditions ( A. 6 ) or ( A. 9 ).
