Title: Kinematic Analysis of the Lynx6 Robotic Arm
Author(s): Daniel Constantin                        

Abstract: To be able to control a robot manipulator as required by its operation, it is important to consider the kinematic in design of the control algorithm. In robotics, the kinematic descriptions of manipulators and their assigned tasks are utilized to set up the fundamental equations for dynamics and control. The objective of this paper is to derive the complete kinematic model (forward kinematics, inverse kinematics) of a 5-DOF Lynx6 Robotic Arm.

Keywords: forward kinematics, inverse kinematics, Lynx6 Robotic Arm.
