This paper proposes a method to deal with the orientation uncertainty problem affected by joint clearances. To solve this problem, it is necessary to establish the theory of mobility of the floating link of multi-loop linkages. Since the theory of the mobility of floating link is yet complete, this paper provides a simple treatment to determine the rotatability between any two links, adjoined or not, in planar multi-loop linkages. The rotation angle of the floating link with respect to the reference link is defined so that there is no ambiguity in analyzing the rotation range of the floating link. Based on the joint rotation space (JRS) method, one may identify not only the branch formation but also the rotatability between any two links on each of the branches. It is a visualized method that reveals the rotation characteristic of multi-loop linkages. This paper demonstrates the rotation range of the floating link with respect to the reference link on six-bar Stephenson linkages, 2-degree-of-freedom (DOF). 7-bar linkages, and 3-DOF. Eight-bar parallel manipulators. This might be the first paper to deal with the rotatability of 3-DOF planar multi-loop linkages. This paper uses the method to predict the clearance-induced angle uncertainty of the 8-bar parallel manipulators, which determines the worst orientation error of the end-effector and fills up the void of the joint clearance uncertainty model proposed by Ting et al. (2017, “Clearance-Induced Position Uncertainty of Planar Linkages and Parallel Manipulators,” J. Mech. Rob., 9, p. 061001).
