Practical modelling and validation of an open-chain industrial manipulator is presented in this paper. A model was obtained to enable an optimal path-planning controller to be designed. The manipulator was simulated with TELEGRIP software. A validation procedure is illustrated and its' limitations exposed. Agreement with model predictions to within 86% for the smallest link and better than 96% for the major joints is achieved. This is part of a series illustrating the effectiveness of simple validation techniques on increasingly complex problems to enable a process of validation to be established. Others have since used this approach.
