Abstract: Robotics technology deals with the design and analysis of robots in various forms in industries as well as in domestic applications. A robot manipulator can perform its task in various forms. Depending upon this, robot manipulators are designed as serial manipulators and parallel manipulators. Individually both types can be proved effective, still there are drawbacks in the design and the kinematic analysis of these manipulators prevails. In this research work a cooperative design of robot manipulators is presented and analysed for its efficacy. In general when manipulators are put together in more numbers, the trajectory planning becomes more complex. Proper design can remove the design defects of the cooperative manipulators and can be utilised in more efficient way. In the proposed research work an analysis is made on such a type of cooperative manipulators in the form of a walking wheelchair design and analysis.
