Joint flexibility from harmonic or direct drives or flexible couplings limits the performance of robots. Performance can be improved by taking into account the fast dynamics that are introduced by joint flexibility. High gain acceleration feedback from the link angles simplifies the robot dynamics, but is limited by joint flexibility. One solution is to use joint torque feedback to stabilize the fast dynamics. In light of this, drive systems that incorporate joint torque sensors are being developed. Flexible Joint Robots is the first book to consider the myriad problems and potential solutions that affect flexible joint robot design. The book covers fundamental concepts, including joint torque feedback control laws, acceleration feedback, and adaptive control laws. It presents a dynamic model of a flexible joint robot in several coordinate systems and includes an analysis of the fast dynamics.
Table of Contents
Introduction. Models. Joint Torque Models. The Fast Dynamics. Joint Torque Feedback. Acceleration Control. Robust Control. Adaptive Control. Conclusions. Simulation. Index.
We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
Most VitalSource eBooks are available in a reflowable EPUB format which allows you to resize text to suit you and enables other accessibility features. Where the content of the eBook requires a specific layout, or contains maths or other special characters, the eBook will be available in PDF (PBK) format, which cannot be reflowed. For both formats the functionality available will depend on how you access the ebook (via Bookshelf Online in your browser or via the Bookshelf app on your PC or mobile device).
