Observer-based Iterative Learning Control to Improve Path Accuracy of Industrial Robots2018 - 2021

For robotic machining tasks, path accuracy is an essential performance criterion. Due to varying friction, non-constant transmission ratio of the gears and variable stiffness of the robot axes, path deviations occur in industrial robots, which have to be compensated for high-precision processes. In the course of the project, suitable robot models, observer and control strategies are to be designed with which the growing accuracy requirements in industrial manufacturing processes can be achieved.
