he main function of the manipulator is to locate the arm of the robot such it can perform its intended tasks. This requires precise and sometimes complicated control of the motions of each of the mechanical elements (i.e., base and joints). To perform useful jobs, however, the robot must also grip and apply force to objects. This requires the addition of end-of-arm tooling, for example a robot hand or gripper, whose motions must also be managed.
