In order to receive the useful geared linkages structures, it is necessary to apply the Reuleaux method for the 6 kinematic chains and the input criteria's:
Number of joints in single-loop kinematic chain f can be defined by the equation f = F + 6 - c.
Given a generic kinematic chain, which maps the joint vector q into the position [] = f(q) of the end-effector, the nonlinear function [] = f(q) can be approximated by a neural network and the network parameter can be learned with the aid of a training set, namely, a large, representative set of input-output patterns: [[] ([t.sub.k]), q([t.sub.k]); k = 1...n}, obtained experimentally via "babbling movements" For example, we can use a three-layered artificial neural network (ANN):
Then the total is 216 possible kinematic chains. Through the combination of links, several working spaces will be achieved, in which robots are able to perform their functional motions (Fig.5)

And the total multiple joint factors P of a kinematic chain can be obtained by adding all multiple joint factors of a kinematic chain together as follows:

The general equation of motion for the planar kinematic chain can be written in the following form:
Regardless of which task of kinematics is the aim of model researches, it must have a properly defined kinematic chain.
In figure 2 the following legend is used: 1--prop with vertical guides, 3--electric motor that drives the feed kinematic chain, 3--feed box (reducing gears), 4--feed screw, 5--hydraulically balanced enclosure, 6--sheaves and cables system, 7--hydraulic cylinder.
2, two [K.sub.B(-1)] connections from the total of three connections provided to be introduced, allow obtaining a parallelogram kinematic chain ([K.sub.C(-2)] connection) without the modification of the DOF sum (Fig.
