Follow the Leader strategy
"Variable Geometry Truss robot manipulators (VGTs) using parallel structure show many characteristics superior to serially-connected manipulators, including low weight, high structural strength, and a high number of degrees of freedom. The characteristics of one particular VGT, the Double-Octahedral Parallel Module (DOPM), allow the truss structure to move and compress with degrees of freedom, while maintaining a "hollow" geometry and low weight. This thesis describes a new motion method for the DOPM-VGT, called Follow the Leader, in which many serially-connected VGT modules move single file in a path to reach a goal trajectory."--Abstract, page iii.
