The process of changing the attachment of a demolition robot is a complex operation and requires a high docking accuracy, so it is hard for operators to control this process remotely through the camera’s perspective. To solve this problem, this paper studies trajectory planning for changing a demolition robot attachment. This paper establishes a link parameter model of the demolition robot; the position and attitude of the attachment are obtained through a camera, the optimal docking point is calculated to minimize the distance error during angle alignment for attachment change, the inverse kinemics of the demolition robot are solved, the trajectory planning algorithm and visualization program are programmed, and then the trajectory planning for the demolition robot attachment changing method is proposed. The results of calculations and experiments show that the method in this paper can meet the accuracy, efficiency, and safety requirements of demolition robot attachment changing, and it has promising application prospects in the decommissioning and dismantling of nuclear facilities and other radioactive environments.
