Control of Robot Manipulators in Joint Space (Advanced by Rafael Kelly, Victor Santibáñez Davila, Julio Antonio Loría

By Rafael Kelly, Victor Santibáñez Davila, Julio Antonio Loría Perez

Robotic regulate is the spine of robotics, a necessary self-discipline within the upkeep of top quality and productiveness in smooth undefined. the commonest approach to regulate for commercial robot manipulators is determined by the size and modification of joint displacement: so-called "joint-space control".

"Control of robotic Manipulators in Joint Space" addresses robotic keep an eye on intensive, treating more than a few model-based controllers intimately: proportional by-product; proportional fundamental by-product; computed torque and a few adaptive versions. utilizing various combos of the text’s 4 parts:

* robotic dynamics and mathematical preliminaries;
* set-point model-based keep watch over;
* monitoring model-based keep an eye on; and
* adaptive and velocity-independent keep watch over

A entire path in robotic keep an eye on in line with joint area should be built for senior undergraduates or masters scholars. different components of analysis vital to robotics, equivalent to kinematics, obtain realization in the case reviews that are established round a 2-degrees-of-freedom planar articulated arm termed the Pelican prototype and used all through to check the tested controllers by means of experimentation.

In addition to the written textual content, auxiliary assets come in the shape of pdf projector shows for the teacher to exploit in lectures and as revealed type aids for college kids, and a pdf ideas handbook. All of this labour-saving supplementary fabric may be downloaded from the Springer website.
