ME 3460 - Robot Dynamics and Control

Covers fundamental components and mechanisms of robotic systems and their multidisciplinary nature. Introduces the robot’s kinematics, dynamics, and control. Presents a quick overview of forward and inverse kinematics, robot dynamics, as well as path planning and control techniques. Topics also include dynamic modeling and analysis of mechanically, electrically, and magnetically driven hydraulic and pneumatic drives; kinematics and motion analysis of linkages; as well as sensing technologies (e.g., position, linear and angular displacements, velocity and acceleration, force and torque sensors) used in robotic systems. Presents kinematics and control of automatic machinery and manufacturing processes, automatic assembly, and inspection robotic systems as representative examples.

Contributions to the modeling and control of cooperative manipulators

This thesis focuses on the modeling and control of cooperative robots manipulating rigid and flexible objects. Theoretical contributions include kinematic and dynamic analysis of robot behavior, new modeling strategies for multi-arm systems and new force/vision controllers that cope with unexpected object deformation. Studies on flexible object manipulation lead to a new dynamic formulation for parallel robots with flexible platforms. The proposed modeling formulations are validated using advanced simulation tools. The control schemes are validated experimentally in the industrial environment using a meat cutting robotic cell.
