Discusses robot accuracy and repeatability and the mechanical and control aspects of robots that lead to errors occuring in static positioning and dynamic path following. Outlines the steps that should be taken to minimise errors and concludes that robot users should encourage manufacturers to utilize the ISO and ANSI standards when measuring and presenting robot capabilities. This will not only give users the ability to objectively compare systems, but also push robot manufacturers to develop a better understanding of the products they are selling.
