The Robot Industries Association (RIA) has defined an industrial robots as "a reprogrammable multi-functional manipulator designed to move material, parts, tools or specialized devices, through variable programmed motions for the performance of a variety of tasks." The most common types of manipulators may be modeled as an open kinematic chain of rigid bodies called links, interconnected by joints. Some have closed kinematic chains such as four-bar mechanisms for some links. The typical industrial robot is mounted on a fixed pedestal base which is connected to other links. The end-effector attaches to the free end and enables the robot to manipulate objects and perform the required tasks.
