Automating domestic ironing is a challenge to the robotic community, particularly in terms of modelling and advanced mechanism design. This paper investigates the ironing process, its relevant folding algorithms and analysis techniques, presents the advanced mechanism synthesis and introduces cross-disciplinary research. It summarises the second part of the results of a technology study carried out under an EPSRC grant "A Feasibility Study into Robotic Ironing", and proposes new techniques in developing a folding and unfolding algorithm and in developing a task-oriented mechanism synthesis for robotic ironing. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.
