Control Theory of Robotic Systems

Front Cover
World Scientific, 1989 - Technology & Engineering - 351 pages
Automated manufacturing is the topic of the day in industry and thus also in R&D investigation in both industrial laboratories and academia. The core of such studies lies in systems of robotic manipulators, with control of such systems for stability, effective goal reaching and coordination (timing, avoidance of collision) being an essential part of it. The manipulators must work at high speed and under considerable payloads which require nonlinear modelling. Their work is subject to bounded uncertainty in many parameters but precision must be secured. This book gives the theoretic base and specific algorithms for control, attaining the objectives under the above features. The algorithms given are in closed form, which makes for fast on-board computing.The book deals with its subject of systems of robots and their coordination control on a fundamental basis, using realistic untruncated models. It will be of lasting interest compared to texts dealing with details of the design of the day.
