We propose a motion planning method for accelerating path-tracking task with constant hand speed using redundant manipulator. Tracking-speed should be increased to satisfy the joint torque and joint velocity limits. We propose a method using the state space of redundant manipulators to analyze these limits and to operate motion planning. This state space has a position on a trajectory, redundant pose, and redundant velocity axes. These limits are projected on state space. We consider, motion planning is path-finding problem on state space at a constant hand speed. To plan a faster motion, a constant hand speed is examined by finding a path with limits in state space. We use computer simulation to test and evaluate our proposed method on 3-link planar manipulator. Results demonstrated motion faster than a motion minimizing joint acceleration norm and a motion minimizing driving torque norm. We also verified a problem when our method was applied to an actual manipulator.
