Task Space and Workspace for Robots

Task Space and Workspace for Robots

In this post, you will learn about the task space and workspace for robots and understand their difference with the robot's C-space. You can find a comprehensive post about the C-space of the robot HERE. ⚠️ This post also has a video version that complements the reading. Our suggestion is to watch the video and then read the reading for a deeper understanding. We saw before that the robot's C-space is the space of all possible configurations of a robot. But what does task space and workspace mean for robots? If you want to learn about task space and workspace,…

The degrees of freedom of a robot is the dimension of the robot's C-space, which is the minimum number of real numbers needed to represent the robot's configuration. As we saw in the previous post, the robot's configuration is our answer to the question where is the robot? And we also saw different ways to represent the configuration…
