Robust Trajectory Following Control of Robotic Systems

Document Type



Using an inversion approach we derive a control law for trajectory following of robotic systems. A servocompensator is used around the inner decoupled loop for robustness to uncertainty in the system. These results are applied to trajectory control of a three-degrees-of-freedom robot arm and control laws Cθ and CH for joint angle and position trajectory following, respectively, are derived. Digital simulation results are presented to show the rapid trajectory following capability of the controller in spite of payload uncertainty.
