This paper addresses the kinematics and graphical representation of the singularity configuration of a hybrid-driven cable-suspended parallel robot (HDCPR) with three translational degrees of freedom (DOFs). Applying the closed-loop vector method and geometric methodology, inverse kinematics of the HDCPR needed for singularity analysis is performed. For the sake of singularity condition calculation within the reachable workspace, the procedure utilizing analytical methodology and gradual search algorithm is presented. Simulation results demonstrate the validity of the kinematics and singularity analysis developed.
