This paper considers guidance-based motion control of planar snake robots using a dynamic feedback control law. We first present the Euler-Lagrange equations of motion of the robot. Subsequently, we introduce a dynamic feedback control law for the joints of the robot to track a desired gait pattern. This tracking control law depends on the time evolution of the state variables of a dynamic compensator which is used for controlling the orientation of the robot. In particular, we employ the… CONTINUE READING
