Robot Manipulator Redundancy Resolution
7 Feedback-Aided Minimum Joint Motion
Kinematic redundancy can be obtained when a robot manipulator possesses more DOF than the minimum number required to execute a given end-effector task. If a robot manipulator is redundant, the inverse-kinematics problem may admit infinite solutions. How to obtain the required optimal solution, that is, the redundancy resolution problem, is an appealing and significant topic in robotics areas. In the past, many redundancy resolution schemes have been presented, and they can be divided into two main categories; that is, globally optimal control of redundancy and local/instantaneously optimal control of redundancy. The globally optimal concept and method were originally suggested by...
