Interval-based Computation of Generalized Aspects of Parallel Robots

The following figures show generalized aspects of several parallel robots projected onto the 2D/3D workspace. Each figure consists of sets of boxes, i.e., interval vectors, computed with a specific interval computation method. Green boxes are certified; red, blue, and black boxes are undecided (i.e., singularity condition, additional inequality constraints, or the inner test of the solution set, respectively, is not certified).

For the detail, refer the following publication:

First figure below shows the undecided boxes that cover the surface of the 3D workspace. Second and third figures show the certified CCs corresponding to the two aspects.
