A lattice of geometries is presented and compared for representing some geometrical aspects of the kinematic design of robot systems and subsystems. Three geometries (set theory, topology and projective geometry) are briefly explored in more detail in the context of three geometric configurations in robotics (robot groupings, robot connectivities and robot motion sensor patterns).
