Bettering operation of Robots by learning
This article proposes a betterment process for the operation of a mechanical robot in a sense that it betters the next operation of a robot by using the previous operation's data. The process has anExpand

A stable tracking control method for an autonomous mobile robot
A stable tracking control rule is proposed for nonholonomic vehicles. The stability of the rule is proved through the use of a Liapunov function. Inputs to the vehicle are a reference posture (x/subExpand

A stable tracking control method for a non-holonomic mobile robot
Proposes a stable control rule to find a reasonable target linear and rotational velocities ( nu , omega )/sup t/. The stability of the rule is proved through the use of a Lyapunov function. The ruleExpand

Learning control theory for dynamical systems
Three types of learning control laws are proposed for mechanical or mechatronics systems with linear and nonlinear dynamics, which may be operated repeatedly at low cost. Given a desired output YdExpand

Realization of robot motion based on a learning method
To make a robot track a given desired motion trajectory, a learning control scheme is proposed which is based on the repeatability of robot motion. In this scheme the robot obtains a desired motionExpand
