Conventional parallel robots are formed by several independent serial chains, connecting in-parallel a single rigid platform, or end-effector, to the base. The novel concept behind a parallel robot with configurable platform is that the rigid end-effector is replaced by a closed-loop chain, which can provide additional grasping capability or additional rotational degrees of freedom, while all motors remain on the base. Fundamental aspects of parallel robots with configurable platforms are presented, as well as two functional prototypes based on this concept.
