Development in parallel-actuated platform manipulators has opened new applications. Proper placement of a platform manipulator is important for it to meet different workspace and other task requirement. We formulate the placement of platform manipulators with triangle-shaped mobile plate as an optimization problem. This paper presents the derivation of multi-variable objective function for both platform placement and task planning. It also discusses the implementation of the down-hill simplex algorithm, and some data from our initial investigation.
