A hyper redundant manipulator has a very large or infinite degree of kinematic redundancy, thus it is possessed of unconventional features such as the ability to enter a narrow space while avoiding obstacles. We propose a novel obstacle avoidance technique for the hyper redundant manipulator to perform a payload location task from point to point while avoiding existing static obstacles in the environment. The scheme is based on analysis in the defined posture space, where three parameters were used to determine the hyper redundant manipulator configurations. The scheme is verified by computer simulation in case of using the model of the developed Hyper-R Arm. It shows that our method works perfect and the obstacles are well avoided globally
