Abstract: The paper studies the output tracking control problem of a class of hyper-redundant robotic arms described by hyperbolic equations. The stability analysis and the resulting controllers are obtained by using the concept of boundary geometric control and an output tracking technique. A conventional PD control is proposed and analysed. Then, for a dynamic model with uncertain components, a robust algorithm is discussed. The output stability is analysed. Numerical simulations are also provided to verify the effectiveness of the approach presented.
Keywords: Hyper-redundant arm, gravitational compensation, controller.
