© 2017, IMechE 2017. The positioning accuracy of the empirical robot manipulators is determined by various factors, such as kinematic accuracy, structure rigidity, and controller performance. Here, we report on the development of a new and straightforward technique to calibrate the kinematic parameters of a dual-arm robot under uncertainty. In comparison with other techniques, which generally rely on using other instruments to calibrate the manipulators, the proposed method utilizes the intrinsic characteristics of the dual-arm robot for calibration. In particular, when the two arms grasp each other, a formed closed chain can be operated as the constraint equation for the kinematic parameter optimization of the two arms. In the optimization process, the dual-arm robot has to pose in various configurations to yield better performance, and thus a motion generation strategy of the dual-arm robot is proposed, where one arm serves as the master to track the designated trajectory and the other arm serves as the slave to track the motion of the master arm by using a compliance control strategy. The proposed calibration method was experimentally validated, and the results confirm that the positioning accuracy of both arms can be improved.
