Abstract

Joint angle servoed robots require rigid links for positioning accuracy. These massive links inhibit dynamic performance. Lightweight links allow faster motion, but their flexibility produces positioning errors. End-point control systems can observe and compensate for these errors thus allowing for precise lightweight robots. An adaptive end-point control system has been developed. Simulation results indicate that deflection induced errors have been significantly reduced.
