A detailed kinematic analysis of the Raven-II(TM) surgical robotics research platform is presented which unifies previous approaches. A standardized link frame assignment methodology is presented. There are different frame assignments and kinematic parameters for the left and right arms, but a single set for the instruments. Forward and inverse kinematic analyses are presented. An offset value (a3), when present, requires a numerical solution of the inverse kinematics. A closed form solution is presented for the a3=0 case.
