In this paper, the kinematic calibration of a planar two-degree-of-freedom redundantly actuated parallel manipulator is studied without any assumption on parameters. A cost function based on closed-loop constraint equations is first formulated. Using plane geometry theory, we analyze the pose transformations that bring infinite solutions and present a kinematic calibration integrated of closed-loop and open-loop methods. In the integrated method, the closed-loop calibration solves all the solutions that fit the constraint equations, and the open-loop calibration guarantees the uniqueness of the solution. In the experiments, differential evolution is applied to compute the solution set, for its advantages in computing multi-optima. Experimental results show that all the parameters involved are calibrated with high accuracy.
