What are the advantages of using the Denavit-Hartenberg representation?

When one wants to model a kinematic chain and in particular define the frames attached to each body, it is common to use the Denavit-Hartenberg parameters. What are the advantages of this ...

Why do we generally prefer DH parameters over other kinematic representations of robot arms?

I am specifically interested in DH parameters versus other representations in terms of kinematic calibration. The best (clearest) source of information I could find on kinematic calibration is in the ...

Denavit-Hartenberg convention

There are two different conventions that can determine DH parameters. What is the difference between Craig's [1, Sec 3.4] convention and the Spong [2, Sec. 3.2] convention? I know that both methods ...

How to convert between classic and modified DH parameters?

I currently have a description of my 22 joint robot in "classic" DH parameters. However, I would like the "modified" parameters. Is this conversion as simple as shifting the $a$ and $alpha$ columns ...

DH parameters for a PPP arm

I found this picture on the web and was working through it to make sure I understood the derivation for a PPP arm. I believe for link 2, alpha_2 ought to be -90 and not +90. Additionally, I don't ...
