We present fast and robust algorithms for the inverse kinematics of serial manipulators consisting of six or fewer joints. When stated mathematically, the problem of inverse kinematics reduces to simultaneously solving a system of algebraic equations. In this paper, we use a series of algebraic and numeric transformations to reduce the problem to computing the eigenstructure of a matrix pencil. To efficiently compute the eigenstructure, we make use of the symbolic formulation of the matrix and use a number of techniques from linear algebra and matrix computations. The resulting algorithm computes all the solution of a serial manipulator with six or fewer joints in the order of tens of milliseconds on the current workstations. It has been implemented as part of a generic package, KINEM, for the inverse kinematics of serial manipulators
