When combined with a piezoelectric actuator, a mechanical amplifier can achieve high resolution and long range motion. In this paper, a previously proposed compliant mechanical amplifier based on a symmetric five bar structure was studied for performance optimization. The amplifier was optimized based on its most significant design parameters with goals of(More)
— One of the most important tasks in robotic applications is trajectory tracking. For such applications it is inherently important that the system obtains a high tracking performance. A widespread control method for trajectory tracking is PD control, which is well-known for its ease of implementation and acceptable tracking performance. However, for tasks(More)
