Performance of robotic systems depends on the robot design, its motions and the workcell set-up. Robot motion economy principles can provide important design guidelines to optimize the overall automation in robotic work systems. This work presents graphic-based analysis of the performance of 10 different robots in four classes and three group sizes for 27 different bin locations (positions and orientations). This extensive analysis and evaluation lead to several conclusive results concerning motion economy principles related to design of robotic workcells.
