This paper describes the design, fabrication and analysis a five axes articulated robotic manipulator. The current work is undertaken by considering various commercially available robotic kits to design and fabricate a five degree of freedom (D.O.F) arm. Forward kinematic model has been presented in order to determine the end effectors position and orientation. Although this work is still in primary level, this analysis is useful for path tracking of an industrial manipulator with pick-and-place application. Based on this analysis, a researcher can develop path tracking behaviour of an end effector in complicated work space.
