Lyapunov-based output feedback learning control of robot manipulators
MetadataShow full item record
This paper address the output feedback learning tracking control problem for robot manipulators with repetitive desired joint level trajectories. Specifically, an observer-based output feedback learning controller for periodic trajectories with known period have been proposed. The proposed learning controller guarantees semi-global asymptotic tracking despite the existence of parametric uncertainties associated with the robot dynamics and lack of velocity measurements. A learning-based feedforward term in conjunction with a novel observer formulation is designed to obtain the aforementioned result. The stability of the controller-observer couple is guaranteed via Lyapunov based arguments. Numerical studies performed on a two link robot manipulator are also presented to demonstrate the viability of the proposed method. © 2015 American Automatic Control Council.
