Abstract

A feedback control system has been developed to operate an elastic robot arm. This work was funded by a grant from the U.S. Army Research Office. The goal of this investigation was to experimentally determine the operating curves, performance plots, and flow coefficients needed to produce an appropriate servovalve signal when operating the hydraulically-actuated robot arm. Through the assimilation of data collected in the laboratory the parameters were determined.
