The spatial resolution of a manipulator is an attribute that is currently used to characterize the performance of an industrial robot. The manipulator resolution is defined as the smallest incremental motion of the end-effector. The spatial resolution is not constant; it depends on the geometry of the robot and varies within its working envelope. A computation is made of the resolution (as a function of the joint coordinates) and spatial resolution maps are constructed for three basic planar manipulators.
