Robot Manipulator Redundancy Resolution
13 Time-Varying Coefficient Aided MM Scheme
The issue of optimal motion control in robotics is becoming a more and more appealing topic as robots are widely applied in scientific research, military and civilian areas, of which the operating environment is much more complicated than that in the past. Redundant manipulators can achieve subtasks such as obstacle avoidance, repetitive motion planning, joint limits, and singularity avoidance, or optimization of various performance criteria, since they have more degrees of freedom (DOF) than required to perform a given end-effector primary task. A fundamental issue in controlling such redundant manipulators is to design suitable redundancy-resolution approaches. The conventional solution to such a redundancy-resolution problem is the pseudoinverse-based formulation.
