Degrees of freedom Degrees of freedom correspond to the number of actuators that produce different robot movements D o F A joint adds a degree of freedom to the manipulator structure, if it offers a new movement to the end effector that can not be produced by any other joint or a combination of them.

**Reference frame origin**

Degrees of freedom Positioning x y z P Reference frame origin Positioning the end effector in the 3D space, requires three DoF, either obtained from rotations or displacements.

**Dynamic Characteristics**

Payload: The load (in Kg) the robot is able to transport in a continuous and precise way (stable) to the most distance point The values usually used are the maximum load and nominal at acceleration = 0 The load of the End-Effector is not included. Example of Map of admitted loads, in function of the distance to the main axis

45
**Dynamic Characteristics**

Velocity Maximum speed (mm/sec.) to which the robot can move the End-Effector. It has to be considered that more than a joint is involved. If a joint is slow, all the movements in which it takes part will be slowed down. For shorts movements it can be more interesting the measure of acceleration. Vmax time speed Short movements Long movement

**Movement capabilities**

1. Working volume (Workspace): Set of positions reachable by the robot end-effector. Shape is more important than the volume (m3) 2. Accessibility: Capacity to change the orientation at a given position. Strongly depend on the joint limits. 3. Maneuverability Capacity to reach a given position and orientation (pose) from different paths (different configurations). Usually implies the presence of redundant joints (degrees of manipulability or degrees of redundancy).
