Abstract

In this paper, a novel repetitive control (RC) scheme is presented and discussed. The general framework is the control of repetitive tasks of robotic systems or, more in general, of automatic machines. The key idea of the proposed scheme consists in modifying the reference trajectory provided to the plant in order to compensate for external loads or unmodeled dynamics that cyclically affect it. By exploiting the fact that uniform B-spline trajectories can be generated by means of dynamic filters, the trajectory planning phase has been integrated within an RC scheme that is able to modify in real time the reference signal in order to nullify the tracking errors occurring at the desired via-points. Because of this mechanism, the control scheme is very suitable for the application to industrial plants with off-the-shelf, unmodifiable controllers. Experimental results obtained with a standard industrial manipulator both in joint space and in workspace show the effectiveness of the proposed method.
