6 dof explained

The term 6 Degrees of Freedom (6 DoF) gets thrown around a lot, especially when discussing robotic arms automating manufacturing processes. But what does 6 DoF actually mean, and why do we say 6 DoF when some robots have 20 or more degrees of freedom? In this educational video, API explains the basic concepts of 6 Degrees of Freedom, its roots in the Cartesian coordinate plane, and why it’s so important to have a 6 DoF capable tracker in automated manufacturing environments.
