1. Given the planar linkage

θ2

θ3 L2

L3 L1 θ1
L4

θ4

Answer the following.


(a) [7 marks] Work out the dof of the C-space using Grübler’s Formula.

Solution:

𝑁 = 4, 𝐽 = 4, 𝑚 = 3, 𝑓𝑖 = 1

4
dof = 𝑚 (𝑁 − 1 − 𝐽 ) + 𝑓𝑖 = 3 (4 − 1 − 4) + 4 = 1
𝑖=1

(b) [3 marks] Express the C-space of the linkage in terms of the joint-wise C-spaces and the set  of all
solutions to the loop-closure equations for the linkage.

Solution: ( 1 )
𝑆 × 𝑆1 × 𝑆1 × 𝑆1 ∩  = 𝑇 4 ∩  = 
