Control of Truss-based Manipulators Using Virtual Serial Models


This paper introduces a novel method for Cartesian trajectory and performance optimization control of kinematically-redundant trussbased manipulators (TBMs), The Virtual Serial Manipulator Approach. The approach is to model complex in-parallel-actuated TBMs as simpler kinematically-equivalent virtual serial manipulators. Standard control methods for… (More)
