We study the control of a simplified model of a PPR robot manipulator subject to a third-order nonholonomic constraint. The model consists of a base body, which can translate and rotate freely in the plane, and a massless arm at the tip of which the end-effector is attached. It is assumed that two forces and a torque applied to the manipulator are available as control inputs. The objective is to control the robot end-effector movement while keeping the transverse jerk component is zero. The main result of the…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
