Application of redundant robots to constrained-motion tasks*

  • Veljko Potkonjak (a1)


The problem of the constrained motion of robot end-effector is discussed. The redundant robot is considered, redundancy being added in order to improve robot working characteristics. In the phase of free motion towards the constraint the errors of basic non-redundant configuration are corrected by means of redundancy. During the constrained motion redundancy plays the role either of active or passive compliance. Between these two phases, the collision with the constraint occurs, and the impact can be absorbed by using redundancy.
