This work deals with the design and comparison of two adaptive position control schemes with a classical PID controller for fully constrained and redundant planar robots. First, a novel method based on inclusion of virtual cables facilitates the linear separation of the uncertain parameters from the input-output signals. Then, two Lyapunov based adaptive controllers based on the sliding mode and PD schemes are designed to compensate for the structure matrix uncertainties, which result from errors in the anchor point locations. Finally, the adaptive controllers are evaluated and compared with a classical PID controller through simulations for a desired 2D singularity-free pose of the mobile platform. The simulation results have shown that the adaptive PD control scheme has the best performance for both fully constrained and redundant cases.
