Abstract

The recent work presents the motion control of a pendulum like under—actuated service robot AC ROBOT ER. This robot is designed to be applied in indoor environments, where it can perform pick and place tasks autonomously and/or with close cooperation with humans. It can also serve as a platform that carries other service robots with lower mobility. The cable suspended robot has a complex structure and its dynamics is difficult to model using conventional robotic approaches. Instead, in this paper natural (Cartesian) coordinates are used to describe the configuration of the robot, while its dynamics is modeled as a set of differential algebraic equations. The method of computed torque control with a PD controller is applied to the investigated under—actuated system. The inverse dynamics solution is obtained via direct discretization of the DAE system. Results for a real parameter case study are presented by numerical simulations.
