We formulated an S-curve parameterization for re-routing a cable path for a given o set displacement. In our approach we assume the cable path to follow a tangent hyperbolic curve. In our formulation, after taking the geometric constraints into account, two free parameters exist. The objective of our design is to maximize the curvature radius. We performed a full search in the two-dimensional design space to find the curvature radius for all possible design configurations. The two-dimensional distribution of curvature radius versus the design parameters is shown in a contour plot that can be readily used for design purposes.
