Optimal conditions for inverse kinematics of a robot manipulator with redundancy

The algorithms of inverse kinematics based on optimality constraints have some problems because those are based only on necessary conditions for optimality. One of the problems is a switching problem, i.e., an undesirable configuration change from a maximum value of a performance measure to a minimum value may occur and cause an inverse kinematic solution to be unstable. In this paper, we derive sufficient conditions for the optimal solution of the kinematic control of a redundant manipulator. In particular, we obtain the explicit forms of the switching condition for the optimality constraints-based methods. We also show that the configuration at which switching occurs is equivalent to an algorithmic singularity in the extended Jacobian method. Through a numerical example of a cyclic task, we show the problems of the optimality constraints-based methods. To obtain good configurations without switching and kinematical singularities, we propose a simple algorithm of inverse kinematics.
