A method is presented for optimizing the motions of articulated systems along specified paths, minimizing a time-energy cost function. Using a transformation to path variables, the optimization problem is formulated in a reduced two dimensional state space. The necessary conditions for optimality, stated for the reduced problem, lead to a compact two point boundary value problem that requires the iterations of only one boundary condition. The optimal control obtained for this problem is smooth… Expand
