Ji and Li presented a method to identify placement parameters for a six-leg platform manipulator. They used Sylvester's dialytic elimination to reduce the identification equations to a univariable polynomial with 16 degrees. This article presents a fast and simple solution to the same problem. The complex function is used to simplify the identification equations, and a univariable polynomial equation is obtained with 8 degrees only.
