Aim: To demontrator and investigate the effects of doing fast motion with a robot. Furthermore to develop a easy to use robot algorithm computer and software system.
Description: The fast and flexible robot is controlled using 120 Nm direct drive motors avoiding backlash and minimizing frition. The computer system consists of a real-time computer and a development computer running MATLAB.
Background: The FLEX robot was designed because experiments with fast and flexible robot proved difficult with our older robots with gears and because a new computer and software system was needed.
Projects: Programming a robot. Trajectory control and visual servoing.
Past Projects: Ph.D. project: Control of fast flexible robots, (97-00), Henrik Skovsgaard Nielsen, and other projects.
