It is known that parallel type mechanisms have many singularities than serial type mechanisms. In haptic application, these singularities deteriorate the force reflecting performance. Moreover, different from general manipulators, haptic systems can't avoid the singular point, because they are operated by the user's random motion command. Although many singularity-free load distribution algorithms for kinematically redundant manipulators have been proposed, singularity-free load distribution algorithms for parallel haptic application have not been deeply discussed. In this work, various singularity-free load distribution algorithms that are appropriate to parallel haptic system are discussed. A new 6 DOF parallel mechanism equipped with four sub-chains is employed as a test device. To cope with singularity problem, four task-priority algorithms and redundant actuation algorithm are discussed and compared through simulation, and also experiments have been performed to show the effectiveness of those algorithms at the presence of singularity.
