ABSTRACT This paper proposes a throwing manipulation strategy for a robot with one revolute joint. The throwing manipulation enables the robot not only to manipulate the object to outside of the movable range of the robot, but also to control the position of the object arbitrarily in the vertical plane even though the robot has only one degree of freedom. In the throwing manipulation, the robot motion is dynamic and quick, and the contact state between the robot and the object changes. These make it difficult to obtain the exact model and solve its inverse problem. In addition, since the throwing manipulation requires more powerful actuators than the static manipulation, we should set the control input by taking consideration of the performance limits of the actuators. The present paper proposes the control strategy based on the iteration optimization learning to overcome the above problems and verifies its effectiveness experimentally.

    ABSTRACT: The present paper proposes the learning control method for the throwing manipulation which can control not only the position but also the orientation of the polygonal object more accurately and robustly by low-degree-of-freedom robotic arm. We show experimentally the validity of the proposed control method with the one-degree-freedom robotic arm. We also demonstrate the usefulness of the throwing manipulation by applying it to sorting task and assembly task on experiments.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents optimal trajectory planning and iterative learning control for a throwing manipulation which can control not only the position but also the orientation of a polygonal object robustly to uncertainties by low-degree-of-freedom robotic arm. We show experimentally the validity of the proposed method with the one-joint robotic arm. We also demonstrate the usefulness of the throwing manipulation by applying it to the parts assembly and sorting on experiments.

    ABSTRACT: The present paper proposes the throwing manipulation method which cannot only control the position and orientation of the rigid object at the final goal, but also make the object track the desired trajectory which minimizes the impact at landing to avoid damages to the object as much as possible. Due to a model uncertainty, it is generally difficult to obtain the exact model and find appropriate control inputs to realize the throwing manipulation by experiments. Instead of raising the accuracy of the throwing model itself, we overcome the problems of the approximate model with errors by proposing the position-based iterative learning control method. We show experimentally that the proposed control method can gain the high positioning performance for throwing a rigid object with one degree of freedom robot.
