ABSTRACT The existing controllers for robot manipulators with uncertain gravitational force can globally stabilize only robot manipulators with revolute joints. The main obstacles to the global stabilization of robot manipulators with mixed revolute and prismatic joints are unboundedness of the inertia matrix and the Jacobian of the gravity vector. In this note, a class of globally stable controllers for robot manipulators with mixed revolute and prismatic joints is proposed. The global asymptotic stabilization is achieved by adding a nonlinear proportional and derivative term to the linear proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller. By using Lyapunov's direct method, the explicit conditions on the controller parameters to ensure global asymptotic stability are obtained.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we design an image-based robust feedback controller to compensate parametric uncertainties. The proposed controller using dynamic compensation scheme leads to improvement in transient response while achieving asymptotic regulation in the presence of parametric uncertainties. The ultimately uniform boundedness of the closed-loop system is proved by the Lyapunov method. The performance of the proposed control system is demonstrated by experiments of a 5 link SAMSUNG FARA industrial robot manipulator with two degree of freedom.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we provide an answer to the longstanding question of designing global asymptotically stable proportional-integral-derivative (PID) regulators for uncertain robotic manipulators. Our main contribution is to establish the global asymptotic stability of the controlled system with the commonly-used PID controller by using Lyapunov's direct method and LaSalle's invariance principle. Furthermore, an improved nonlinear proportional-integral plus derivative (NPI-D) controller is proposed to fast the transient. Simulations performed on a planar two degrees-of-freedom (DOF) robot manipulator demonstrate the improved performance of the proposed NPI-D controller over the commonly-used PID controller.

    ABSTRACT: This paper addresses the global output feedback regulation problem for robot manipulators in the presence of actuator constraints, and a very simple bounded proportional-derivative (PD) plus desired gravity compensation scheme is formulated as solution to this problem. The global asymptotic stability of the closed-loop system is proved with Lyapunovpsilas direct method. Simulations performed on a two-degrees-of-freedom (2-DOF) manipulator demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
